The Neck, Bruny Island

The Neck, Bruny Island

This morning started with lots of rain, defying the forecast of sunny skies and making the journey here somewhat in the unknown. But lo and behold – the clouds gave way for blue sky and sunlight, making this capture possible, capturing the immense beauty of this stretch of Bruny Island. I was in luck to […]

The Neck, Bruny Island, Tasmania

The Neck, Bruny Island

This road is built on a very narrow stretch of land, where one side has an amazing beach seen here, and the other facing Tasmania. As you can see there is barely a place to park you car. How this place is during the high season I can only imagine. I enjoyed every minute of […]

Bennett's Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus ssp. rufogriseus)

Bennett’s Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus ssp. rufogriseus)

At first I thought I encountered an albino, but it just a very light-colored variation to the norm which you can see on the individual drinking water below – just a few meters away. Aperture: ƒ/4.5 Camera: NIKON D4S Focal length: 500mm ISO: 640 Shutter speed: 1/640 s

Port Sorell, Tasmania

Port Sorell, Tasmania

Humanity has always been inspired by nature, and tried to express their experience of nature through art. Although there are countless incredible human productions, nature simply cannot be beat in any way. Be it microscopic or on cosmological scales. Nature is always more. Every moment of every day there are shapes, patterns and colors for […]

Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii)

Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii)

The first time I encountered this species I was surprised how small and cute looking they were. I had the misplaced assumption they were large and very aggressive as their name suggested. As with so many of the Australian marsupials this is a cute looking animal you can see crossing the road or in the […]

Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae)

Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae)

Kingfishers are known for fishing, but fish is not big on the laughing kookaburras menu. It will sit perched high like a fence post seen here, and wait for prey to move below and then swoop in. With its formidable beak the prey stands little chance of survival. It will catch snakes, geckos, lizards, mice, […]

Anatidae

Cape Barren Goose (Cereopsis novaehollandiae)

The meadows in between the 56 wind turbines of Musselroe Wind Farm at Cape Portland provides food for the cape barren geese, and hopefully none of them are killed by the blades of the turbines. This species is also found on the southern coast of mainland Australia. It sounds like this: Aperture: ƒ/5.6 Camera: NIKON […]

Green Rosella (Platycercus caledonicus)

Green Rosella (Platycercus caledonicus)

A Tasmanian endemic, which means it lives nowhere else on Earth. It sounds like this: Aperture: ƒ/8 Camera: NIKON D4S Focal length: 500mm ISO: 400 Shutter speed: 1/1000 s

Taylor's Beach, Break O'Day, Tasmania

Taylor’s Beach, Break O’Day

A very brief, but stunning part of sunset on a beach I visited many times during my stay here. Every hour of the day provided a uniquely beautiful experience, and particularly so with the presence of only nature and wildlife, as this was autumn and the low season for visitors. Aperture: ƒ/8 Camera: NIKON D5 […]

Taylor's Beach, Break O'Day, Tasmania

Taylor’s Beach, Break O’Day

This is such a beautiful beach I’m sure is pretty crowded in summer, but this is autumn and this couple were the only other humans I encountered here during my several visits during my time here. Aperture: ƒ/18 Camera: NIKON D5 Focal length: 70mm ISO: 500 Shutter speed: 1/640 s

Bicheno Blowhole, Tasmania

Bicheno Blowhole, Tasmania

The Bicheno blowhole can be magnificent if you come during optimal conditions of high waves and tide with a partly cloudy sky as seen here. Better stick around in Bicheno if you are unlucky in regards to the weather and tidal conditions on your first attempt. Aperture: ƒ/7.1 Camera: NIKON D5 Focal length: 24mm ISO: […]

Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Coles Bay

Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Coles Bay

A beautiful lighthouse in an amazing natural setting, and I had it almost all to myself! As I visited in autumn, there were hardly any visitors and the landscape was all natural sounds and sights. Elevation: 18 meters Aperture: ƒ/5.6 Camera: L1D-20c Focal length: 10.26mm ISO: 100 Shutter speed: 1/400 s

Red-necked Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus)

Red-necked Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus)

In many places the various species of wallabies have become so used to humans that they come out and up close to check you out. As they are herbivores I find it quite interesting why they chose to come up close to humans. Perhaps some humans do hand out irresistible plant materials, or some have […]

Russell Falls, Mount Field

Russell Falls, Mount Field

This was perhaps the most “crowded” of all the waterfalls I visited during my trip to New Zealand And Tasmania this autumn, and I can only imagine how crowded this place would be during the high season. During my visit it was all nature and only the occasional visitor. I even saw a sleeping wallaby […]
