7 Day Itinerary:
Day 1 - Launceston Airport to Cradle Mountain National Park, Dove Lake Afternoon/Evening Shoot. The many moods of the lake along with the boat shed can be our focus for our first of many shoots in this Jurassic Mountain-Scape. The Dolorite Geology and changing textures of flora are always different in each season.
Day 2 - Sunrise Shoot, Editing & Day Walk to Crater Lake. With our head lamps on at the crack of the sparrows fart we will awaken with a glorious sunrise. The stillness of the lake and the dramatic skies always promises to be a relaxing and memorable experience. The surrounding fauna and streams along the 2 hour bush walk are perfect for a long exposure.
Day 3 - Arthur's Lake Afternoon/Evening Shoot + Editing. Also know as the drowned forest. This place nestled up in the highland lakes offers a unique landscape. An anglers paradise for trout fishing. Hydro Tasmania pumps water from these lakes back to the mainland. The eerie melancholic look of the Gum trees and the calm water contrast for the ultimate slow shutter shot.
Day 4 - Arthur's Lake Sunrise Shoot + Freycinet National Park Afternoon/Evening Shoot. At Coles Bay in Freycinet Lodge the jetty works well for a sunset shoot. If we are lucky with clear skies we may even catch a Milky Way Shot.
Day 5 - Sunrise Sleepy Bay + Bicheno Afternoon/Evening Shoot Ferry Pengiuns. Like most sunrise shoots we will have a look at good vantage points the day before during the day so we don't for the perfect spot in the dark. Good non slip shoes and sturdy tripod work best in these situations. Scouting the exact spot and knowing our terrain will be very helpful.
Day 6 - Drive to Eaglehawk Neck to shoot the Tesselated Pavement for a sunset and sunrise. Other surrounding locations include Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen.
Day 7 - Russell Falls & Horseshoe Falls morning shoot at Mt. Field National Park. In Autumn the poplar trees go a canary yellow colour. The moss and fungi are plentiful so a macro lens can come in handy for those close up shots of mushrooms. Late Afternoon Departure to Hobart Airport or you can choose to stay the night in Hobart. To finish our last shot will be a short hike up to the falls and streams. The cascading ferns and emerald green moss will be our final re-charge. We will have lunch in New Norfolk at the Patchwork Cafe which is located in the old Mental Hospital grounds. It is currently a car graveyard with loads of antique industrial archeology. From rusty tractors to skeleton trucks you will have find something interesting to photograph.
