Most photographs are presented geographically, for those who love a sense of place. Others are grouped in portfolios of favourite themes. Images may appear in more than one gallery or portfolio.
Between COVID lockdowns, I undertook four long walks of between 5 and 16 days' duration in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. In the late summers of 2021 and 2022, we traversed dolerite and quartzite mountains, button-grass valleys and wild coastlines. From flooded rivers to parched bogs, through scrub and on tracks, freezing on one trip and scrounging for water on another, we experienced some of the wonder of this magnificent region. It was so great to be back... thank you to my fellow walkers.
Images from a three-day traverse of the highest part of Australia, in August 2020, on crampon and snowshoe (as we expected, the wind-blasted slopes were too icy for skiing). After an absence of too many decades, I was reminded what a magnificent piece of landscape this is. We climbed most of the highest peaks along the way, from South Ramshead to Mount Tate in the north.
