Where: Lake Fenton, Mount Field National Park, Tasmania

Equipment: Canon 70D with aCanon 18-135mm lens

Photo details: ISO160, 93mm, f/5.6, 1/160 secs

Editing: Minor adjustments done in Lightroom CC

Notes: It’s fagus season in Tasmania! Fagus (Deciduous beech, Nothofagus gunnii) being Australia’s only cold climate winter-deciduous tree. And it’s only found in Tasmania. When I went traipsing around Mt Field for a day I stopped in to see if the fagus had started to turn colours yet. Not quite. This was the most colourful bit I could find, after I *almost* stepped on it clambering over rocks, poking through the bushes along the lake. Planning on going back soon to hopefully catch more colour!

Editing: Minor editing down in Lightroom CC

Notes: Took advantage of some mild weather to haul my body and soul down to the beach to watch the sunrise. It was beautiful. Just as I was about to leave, these two gentlemen climbed out of their car, launched their boat and took off quick smart. They weren’t wasting any time!

I feel good . . .

Where: Taroona Beach, Tasmania

Equipment: Canon 70D with a Tokina 11-16mm lens

Photo details: ISO 1600, 11mm, f/2.8, 30 sec

Editing: No editing!

Notes: Last one from that night (for now!!). It’s amazing the buzz you get from aurora hunting. Especially when it’s so exciting as it was for those two nights! This night, I have never seen so many people down on the beach catching the aurora! I honestly would not have been surprised if there had been hundreds down at Taroona Beach trying their luck . . . always good fun!

Went to a seafood disco. . .

Pulled a mussel.

Notes: Another shot with the Lady Aurora australis dancing for us. While often the aurora can only be picked up in camera, this night and the night before were perfect opportunties for those who don’t do photography to view it. It was easy to watch the beams dance across the sky…

Without dance . . .

What’s the pointe?
