Cradle Mountain National Park in Tasmania must have to be one of the most pristine places in Australia. In early September I was lucky enough to spend five days in this region and I absolutely loved it. There is just so much flora and fauna there, on one particular walk I was lucky enough to come face to face with a young wombat. I thought it would run off but no it just looked at me and then kept on eating grass, it wasn’t concerned that I was there at all. You just can’t buy experiences like that.
I managed to get this photo on my very last night at Cradle Mountain, it had be raining for most of the week and the light was extremely difficult to capture but on this last night, she decided to show me how pretty she looked and boy was I impressed. I hope you are as well.

This is a photo that I managed to grab down at Cottesloe Beach this morning. Its funny, normally I don’t see photos in black and white but this one was always going to be black and white the minute I saw it. With my seascapes I normally like to use colour because it brings out the colour of the ocean but in this instance the composition and photo didn’t require colour to pull this one off.
I didn’t use any filters for this shot, it just didn’t seem to require it. I hope you guys enjoy it.
What do you guys think of it?
Mt Roland in Tasmania is a place I’ve wanted to photograph for a really long time and finally I had the opportunity to capture it. It was a challenge driving to this spot if nothing else as there was ice on the road and I’ve never driven in those sorts of conditions before. Its kind of freaky when you’re turning your wheels one way and the car is going the other way!
This landscape photograph is a seven image stitch and the file is huge so I’ll be able to get some really massive prints out of this one. This was also the last shot I managed to get before I left Tasmania. Its always good to end things on a good note.
Hope you guys enjoy it and all comments are appreciated,

As I mentioned previously in my last post Australian landscape photography – Tasmania I’ve had the opportunity to hit Tassie and in particular Cradle Mountain for 5 days. If you’ve never been to Cradle Mountain and Tasmania you should definitely do it. Its an amazing state and its just so beautiful. I could spend months there just photographing the place as its so scenic.
This photo was actually taken in January this year when the water levels were quite low and the rocks in the foreground were exposed. Normally they are submerged, during all the other months, they were still slippery though and the lake is still very cold at that time of year as I was to find out unfortunately. While trying to position myself for a good shot I fell into the water face first and got completely soaked! I soldiered on like a true landscape photographer though and got this shot.
I spent a couple of hours in front of a heater after this trying to thaw out I was that cold!
I hope you guys enjoy this photo and as always all comments are very appreciated.
I’m back from my trip to Tasmania and Sydney. I managed to get some amazing landscape photographs on the trip which I will be displaying over the next few weeks. This rock is called The Nut and its located at Tasmania and its typical of the sort of scenery you get from this area of Tasmania. I got really lucky this day as it had been raining heavily for three days so heavily in fact that even standing below The Nut I couldn’t see the top of it. The moment I saw blue skies I hit the road and traveled up to Stanley to get this shot.
I was really happy with this one. There are clouds in the shot, with beautiful green fields and a nice deep blue ocean.
I hope you guys enjoy it as well.
