Secret Spot in the Tarkine near Corinna

May 20th, 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…

Continued on from the previous blog entry Back from Tasmania Photo tour part 2

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!

Back from Tasmania photo tour Part 2

May 13th, 2018

Continuing on from the previous entry, Back from Tasmania Photo Tour Part 1…

From the historic town of Stanley, on the North West coast of Tasmania we headed South into the stunning wilderness of the Tarkine region on the Wild West Coast, with Arthur River as the base camp.  The Roaring 40s smash into the West Coast of Tasmania without anything getting in the way to slow them down for thousands of kilometres, so it’s one of the wildest most untamed stretches of coastline in the world!

Back from Tasmania photo tour part 1

May 10th, 2018

I got back from my Tasmania photo tour several weeks ago now, so this entry is long overdue.  I managed to lock myself out of my own website for a while…  That’s frustrating.

So I spent 10 days in March tramping around the Tarkine region in the North West corner of Tasmania with 6 participants and Paul Hoelen.  We had  wild winds, crazy rain, fog and the occasional bit of blue sky.  It was awesome!Tasmania Photo Tour

Tasmania Photo Tour 2018 Finalised

December 9th, 2017
It’s been a long road, but we are finally there, our Tasmania photography adventure is ready! Tasmania has proven to be even more remote and wild than we ever anticipated. For one section of the planned trip through the Tarkine region we had such trouble finding any catering that we have actually hired our own cook to feed us.Tasmanian Photo tour-08
This is really a minor inconvenience, but these things take time to arrange and set up, thus the delay in finalising this tour.  But now it’s all done,  and you can read all the details on the Tasmania Photo tour web page.
We have a maximum of just 8 places on this tour and so far 4 spots are already taken, so if you are keen to come…

WAPF Quairading Photography Weekend

June 1st, 2015

Last weekend, almost straight after returning from Bhutan, I went on a trip to the town of Quairading, in the wheat belt of WA with 60 other photographers… It was a weekend away organised by the WAPF, the West Australian Photographic Federation, and specifically by Ric & Ailsa McDonald from the GEM Camera Club.  I have been promising to go on one of their photographic weekends for years, but I always seem to be out of the country on an expedition of my own when the WAPF weekends come around.  Well finally I was around for one, so I went, jet lag and post Bhutan tour exhaustion and all!

More from Hamersley Gorge Karijini National Park

February 16th, 2015

Another image from my favourite gorge in one of my favourite places, Hamersley Gorge Karijini National Park.  This image was shot in the early morning before the sunlight enters the gorge and burns out all the colours in the rocks and the water.  Because Hamersley Gorge is outside the main part of the Karijini National Park, not only does it receive less visitors, but they also arrive much later,  so few people see this spectacular gorge in the most beautiful light of pre sunrise or twilight.

I know a secret little campsite nearby, so I can get there very early in the morning and I usually have this gorge to myself (and the birds and wallabies) for many hours before the first visitors arrive for the day.  This feels like an enormous privilege, one I enjoy immensely.
