Hobart Tasmania

Hobart Tasmania Constitution Dock Australian Landscape Photography Mount Wellington

Not sure what WordPress has done to this pic to make it look soft in the small version, but if you click on the photo and view the large version its sharp.

Ok, all jokes Tasmanian jokes aside, Tasmania rocks!   I am definitely going back again this year to cover it in more detail.   I could’ve spent days in Hobart itself just taking photos alone.   This was the view that I was presented with my first morning in Tasmania and I was just blown away by it.   I was hoping for mirror like reflections in the water and to have Mount Wellington light up like it did was just a bonus.    This particular morning I also managed to get over to Salmanca Place and captured some pretty cool shots from there with Mount Wellington in the background as well.   Tasmania, a landscape photographers dream.

Hopefully Tim from Island Images will approve of this shot. 🙂

As always for those who are curious:

Aperture – F22

ISO 50

Shutter – 1/4sec

The roads are so steep and have so many corners that I think if I moved to Tassie I’d buy a WRX or EVO just to deal with the corners.    To give you an idea of how hard it is to get around on the West Coast, it took us almost 3hrs to travel 70kms around the Queenstown area.

Has anyone else considered a trip to Tassie and what areas did you think of shooting?

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Daybreak At Twilight Cove

twilightcove

Hi Crew,

This is a photo from my first morning in Esperance when I was there in May.   Poor Neal had to drink a bottle of Red to help him sleep as Kirk and I apparently aren’t the quietest of sleepers.  I don’t know what he meant as I didn’t hear anything!   This is one of those sunrises that you just get lost in as you stand there in amazement, you have to remember to keep taking photos.    After we’d had a few days of average light in the Stirling Ranges this sunrise was definitely a welcome sight.   If you’ve never been to Esperance you should do, its a must for landscape photography, its such a beautiful and diverse place.

We revisited Twilight Cove a number of times over the next few days but nothing matched up to this sunrise, in fact it was probably the best one the whole trip.   I remember after catching these photos walking away from the camera for a couple of minutes and just watching it unfold before me, dare I say it was almost a spiritual experience?

Have any of you guys ever grabbed a few photos and then stepped back and enjoyed the view and allowed yourself to be caught up in the moment?

Hope you enjoy the photo and as always comments are appreciated. 🙂

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson
