Photographing Tasmania’s West Coast

I have just returned from a wonderful week photographing and exploring Tasmania’s rugged West Coast – Strahan, Queenstown and Lake St Clair. I had not been there for quite a while and it was a joy to rediscover its dramatic barren or snow-covered mountains, the grand and not-so-grand buildings, the vibrant colours, its blazing orange moonscape (with its returning trees) and the wild and beautiful wilderness so close. Beauty is around every corner and we loved every moment of our journey there. In my mind’s eye I saw so many photographic possibilities.  Thank you to my three lovely and patient companions Ruby, Harriet and Sarah.

Also a big warm thank you to Mark and Adam at Franklin Manor,  for making us feel so very welcome, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you too to Mikaela, Tahlia and Jenny for their great coffee and conversation at The Coffee Shack in Strahan.

These images were captured with my Canon 5D MkIII and my  two favourite lenses: the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art Series and my Canon 70-200L f/2.8. Edited in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.
