Tasmania is the most southern state of Australia, situated south of the 40 degree south parallel. The island is an absolute paradise for photographers and those keen on the great outdoors!
Bay of fires/Bicheno
This part of Tasmania's east coast runs from Binalong Bay in the south up to Eddystone Point. Its shoreline is characterised by orange colour granite boulders that line the white beaches and brilliant blue seas. Its a must for photographers #bayoffires #Tasmania
I have included shots here from Bicheno because the granite lined foreshores have the same remarkably marked boulders.
Pencil pines, Pine Lake and Central plateau
When you ascend the Great Western Tiers from the rich farmland of northern Tasmania you reach a stark wilderness full of amazing wonders, many found only in Tasmania.
Waterfalls and river swirls
Waterfalls abound in Tasmania, we only saw a few but they were very therapeutic to photograph.
Fungi and other critters
Our visit coincided with the peak of the fungi season. We bumped into a couple who said they had seen very little fungi in April. It was a very different story in mid to late May!
The frozen world of Mt Barrow
Mt Barrow in the state's northeast is an imposing mountain with a nail biting ascent to the top. We made the ascent on a balmy day in mid may where it was still and 4 degrees. It was not difficult to imagine it as an utterly freezing place with bone numbing winds in more normal conditions!
Aurora Australis and Tasmanian night skies
For more images see my Aurora Australis gallery, however these were a couple of highlights of imaging the aurora and the night sky (Milky Way) during my time in Tasmania)
