Day 345. Guide Falls – always an interesting place, with the hexagonal rocks and the various farm and forest detritus that flows down the river…
Day 264. And here’s where the path stops. Or is this where it starts – from here to who knows where?
(Special thanks to you, Dr David Moltow, for expert location scouting!)
Day 246. Another morning on the beautiful North West coast, the air cold enough to shock your breath into tiny clouds, clean enough to make your lungs ache and sing at the same time, fresh enough to make your hands numb and aching all at once…
Day 214. It’s back to Marrawah, for another colourful shot! I really liked these channels in the sand between the rocks, like little pathways to the ocean… taken in one of those brief glimpses of the sun between storm fronts… love the light in those moments.
Day 151. Certain people who live in or near Wynyard and own certain cafes might possibly recognise this spot? Or not…
Day 59… it’s a special day (some people will know why…), so a shot from a special place… Rocky Cape NP. You’ve seen this a few times before, most notably Day 34. I took this shot just after talking to Sharon when she was getting on the plane in Germany to come home. I felt happy.
[There’s something that I quite like about this shot… I think it’s the ‘under the water, over the water’ feel that it has? Or is that just me? Anyway, taken with the OM-D, and the little Panasonic 14mm pancake lens. Now I’m off to enjoy the rest of this special day with my lovely wife!!]
Day 32. Another waterscape, but slightly different approach this time…
[OM-D. Panasonic 14mm f/2.5. This was also at Rocky Cape NP, and I was really struck by the contrast between the brightness of the orange rocks, and the deep greens and blues of the water. A long exposure helps to emphasise that contrast, and also the different textures. At least, that’s how it seems to me. I think this is one of my favourites so far… not quite Day 22, but I like it. 🙂 ]
Day 31… here comes the storm!
[Taken at the beach in Burnie this time – hence the large pile of woodchips visible… OM-D, and the little Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 pancake lens. Along with the ND110 of course. Looks quite serene I think? Even though for the last 10 seconds of the exposure I was getting pelted with rain, and spray from the waves hitting those rocks in the foreground…]
Day 22. Here’s another blue one for you Sharon. 🙂
[This is taken at Doctors Rocks, near Wynyard. I wasn’t actually out to take photos – I was on my way to an exhibition opening at the very excellent Bruce’s Cafe. Saw the light on these rocks on the way, and just couldn’t help myself. Also, it meant I was fashionably late, which is always a good thing. Apparently. Taken with the OM-D, and the Olympus 45mm f/1.8. Not a traditional landscape combo, but it works for me! For those who have been following my thinking on these pages, you will appreciate that this is again an example of the benefits of a kind of ‘wakeful planlessness’. Have to find something better to call it. Obviously.]
