Back in April and May of 2017 (last year as I write now) I wrote about my experiences researching the two new 100mp offerings from Phase One and Hasselblad, the Phase One XF camera with IQ3-100 digital back and the Hasselblad H6D-100… and how I chose which one to buy to upgrade from my ageing Hasselblad H4D-60. To summarise the results of that research, I chose the the Phase One XF and IQ3-100, for details of the process you can read about it HERE>>
Continuing on with the story from my back from Tasmania photo tour part 3 post of a few weeks back… which I left in Corinna, the heart of the Tarkine wilderness. The next stop was a complete change of scene as we headed up into the cloud forests and open grasslands of the Cradle Mountain National Park, a very different landscape to the thick temperate rainforest and wild windswept coastline of the Tarkine.
From the same secret spot near Corinna in the Tarkine region in the North West corner of Tasmania, a spot we were shown on the last photo tour of Tasmania earlier this year. A magical creek flowing through towering old growth temperate rain forest, a real fairyland place filled with delicate mushrooms, huge Man Ferns and moss covered stones. I kept expecting to see fairies or elves… I’m sure they are there somewhere, perhaps hiding under these mushrooms.
More in the series of posts from my recent Tasmania Photo tour in March 2018. Many of the small creek beds around the town of Corinna in the Tarkine Region of Tasmania were pretty badly trashed by prospectors panning for gold in the 1880s. Those guys weren’t too concerned with natural beauty of the environment, they just wanted gold as fast as possible! That was over 100 years ago, and the forest has regenerated and recovered so you would hardly know humans had been there, until you find a place that was never trashed…
This is a secret spot revealed to Paul and I by an old local prospector in Corinna on the last Tasmania Photo tour back in March. It’s only 10 minutes off the track, but you would never know it was here if you weren’t looking…

The tiny gold rush town of Corinna is the best place to experience the Tarkine region of Tasmania, because Corinna is right in the middle of it. Corinna was a major centre of the Tasmanian Gold rush of the 1880s… historical reports say that Corinna was a completely lawless place, one of the most drunken violent towns in a very bleak and violent place. It would not have been a nice place to live if you didn’t like drinking and fighting!
