    Here's a 'small' set from my second last trip on the Overland this season :smile: Just one more and then it's off to the trails and mountains of Europe for me!

    At this time of the year the fungus is in full swing and the Nothofagus gunnii (Deciduous beech) has about reached it's full autumn colours. Fagus is one of only two Australian natives to loose it's leaves - the other being a tree found in central Aus that sheds during summer to conserve water.

    Shot with the GH2, Lumix 7-14 and Nokton 25mm with B+W CPL

    Nice set Nick.....I love #3 for the full on CV25 pop.

    I thought you were off to the Himalayas (?) .....you say Europe now....change of plan ???

    Out of curiosity, have you perhaps figured out a solution re: ND filter mod for the 7-14mm ??

    I was always going to go to Europe this winter (I've got a brother in Helsinki who's just had his first child) but I was going to return to Aus through Nepal. Now I've decided to spend a solid 5 months in Europe this winter and do 6 months in the Himalaya next year (the joys of working a 6 month guiding season) :smile:

    No ND solution yet, but haven't really had time to work on it... I'm still pondering :wink:

    That is really a great set, Nick. You are privileged to have time and location working with you now. Keep taking advantage of it while you can. I like all the shots, but my favorite would be the Barn Bluff and Pencil Pine.
  6. Wonderful set of images; a great advertisement for Tassie and for Micro 4/3.

    Thanks people! If anyone's interested I've started a photography and travel blog where I talk about some of my adventures in a bit more detail :wink:

    Your Sassafras don't look like the ones in Kentucky, USA. Some very beautiful country there. Thanks for sharing.
