The upside of the summer rain in the north west of Tasmania is the volume of water over Dip Falls. Love this place!

These falls are about an hours drive south of Deloraine on the fringe of the Great Western Tier ranges in Tasmania. The walk down to the falls through lush rain forest has a prehistoric air.

The tessellated rock of Dip Falls in North Western Tasmania, is a signature of these falls and with such a flow of water in winter, a long exposure makes for this exquisite mosaic.

Sunset over the stark, jagged, red lichen covered rocks that line the Rocky Cape peninsular in north west Tasmania. To the left of the little island you can make out the wisps of steam from Port Latta’s iron ore plant, and to the right of the setting sun, the Nut in Stanley is but a blimp. It was precarious clambering over these rocks to get to this vantage point, but the striking colours, the amazing geology and this view over Pebbly Bay and Bass Strait make it a worthy scramble.

This was taken from Dolphin Sands a 9 mile Beach that arcs across the north of Great Oyster Bay. On the horizon lies the remarkable Hazards and Freycinet National Park. I feel like I know this beach well now, having taken in both sunrise and sunset with the hope of catching a glimpse of an Aurora Australis either side of it. Alas not this time but the views still made it worth it.

I’ve always been fascinated with the formation and colours of these rocks; like the spine of some prehistoric creature they breach the otherwise uninterrupted sweep of 3km sand on Hellyer beach. You can find Hellyer beach between Rocky Cape National Park and Stanley in the North West of Tasmania.

The middle tier of Tasmania’s Liffey Falls cascades through ancient tree ferns and rain forest. An overcast day, in such dense rain forest made for low and diffuse light, ideal for a long exposure of the falls.
