    Here's a random collection of shots from Freycinet National Park on Tasmania's East Coast, where I spent new years with family on the boat :smile:

    If you're interested, there's a bit more info on my blog - Freycinet pt.I – Wineglass Bay and The Hazards | people + other strange creatures

    Freycinet pt.II – Bryan’s Corner, Schouten Is. and Mt Freycinet | people + other strange creatures

    This was one of the rare occasions that I actually took basically all the kit I own, so images were shot with a GH2 and Lumix 7-14mm, m.ZD 12mm, Nokton 17.5mm, Nokton 25mm, m.ZD 45mm and m.ZD 75mm, with an assortment of B+W and Kenko Zeta filters.

    **side note** Some of you may have heard about the recent Tasmanian fires. Well, we were lucky enough to avoid the worst of them (the Freycinet Peninsular was closed to hikers the day after I completed the trail run as a lightening storm set-off a huge number of spot fires, and Tasmania has been under a total fire ban since) but those down in the south east of the state (especially the township of Dunalley) weren't... The photo below is one of a collection taken by Tim Holmes as he and his wife tried to seek refuge with their grandchildren in the Dunalley Canal. Luckily no lives were lost but the material loss is huge, and a lot of communities and families are going to be hurting for a long time. If you're into that kinda thing please think about donating to the Red Cross Tasmanian Bushfires Appeal - Tasmanian Bushfires 2013 Appeal | Australian Red Cross - The Power Of Humanity

    Beautiful location and photos. I took a quick shot of a rainbow from my street today - thought it pretty good until I saw yours! Nice work.
