Hot, windy, lightnings, no rain...Tasmania is burning :crying:
We are lucky on the Tasman Peninsula so far (except the only road in/out is closed atm due to a new fire...) but the rest of the state is not so lucky. Uncontrolled fires all over the state, hundreds are evacuated, many thousands of...
He is quite amazing. He is so comfortable around here and often comes and just sit with us. Sometimes on the lap, sometimes on the head :laugh1: He does enjoy a little scratch on the neck.He obviously knows there *might* be a little something for him. He is a great dad though and most of the...
Oh how I hate photos of myself (I don't even look like myself anymore :rolleyes:) but Tucho is too cute to ignore. He lives with his family in a tree a couple of hundreds meters away. He is always hungry.
I think I have a new favorite. I have learned not to eat or drink while watching because it will end up sprayed on the screen and keyboard. Both his and mine...

Here is his latest vid (with Adam Gibbs again)
I think Ben Long's Photography Foundation on Lynda course is an excellent course. There are many other great courses on Lynda.
Another great place for learning is Cambridge in Colour
And of course this site is a great place to explore - ask questions and be inspired :)
You might want to be careful walking around here. It was a hike out to Cape Hauy that made us come and live here...
Wineglass Bay is not too bad either, eh? We did a 3-nighter loop there in November last year. Spectacular!

Camp 2 on top of Mount Graham...
I'm actually right where I'd be if I started from scratch in my current financial situation.

If I had money to go on those fancy Greenland photo workshops and the likes where I don't have to carry them for long, I would love to have the 8-18, 12-100 and...
Sorry to keep this going but I need to ask another question @Amin Sabet
Afaik a link from Flickr will remain a link even after I delete from Flickr. It will just take you to a dead page. Is there a way to kill that link *properly* so that the attachment here on the forum could have that nice...
Here are a few from a hike along the Cape Hauy track in the Tasman National Park

Thanks! I've done a few more hikes since that I will post some pics from soon. We have lived here now for about 15y and I am still blown away every time I go out for an explore. Tasmania is a truly wonderful place and well worth a (long) visit :thumbup:
I usually don't have the patient nor the technique to shoot birds properly. If the opportunity comes around I fire off a few. But one day I brought along the 75-300 with the intention to practice a little. Here are some of the results. They are all along the Cape Hauy track in Tasman NP
One of the reasons I bought a G7Xii was to always have a good camera in the pocket. On my daily (well, I try) beach walks I don't want to carry a bag but then you stumble on a young leopard seal :dash2:

So I again started to carry the bag but didn't want to...
From a couple of years ago in Sweden. Got up early in the morning when I heard the rain to get the laundry in and was awestruck when I looked up. I've never seen clouds like this.

A 22° halo for breakfast is always nice :)
Unless you shoot *lots* of verticals or very low, weird angles, swivel is a pain imo. Many other users love it but it is one of those divisive feature that will never be settled. Only you can say if it will work for you. If $200 hurts a lot, I'd say don't bother. If it doesn't hurt, go for it...
