I was lucky enough to visit the east coast of Tasmania during the first week of August 2012. It was the middle of winter and the days were only reaching temperatures of 12°C and the night temperatures are just above 0°C. My brother Jordan, who is going to be a travel advisor, recommended that I visit Wineglass Bay in my travels throughout Tasmania and the area truly doesn’t disappoint. All within the space of about 40 km are The Hazards, Wineglass Bay, Coles Bay and the Freycinet National Park. I went into the area the day before to scout out my location for the shot I was going to take for sunrise. I try to find a spot that will have the attraction in your field of view and then the sun rising up behind it on the horizon. I also use some applications and websites to scout locations such as trey ratcliff’s ipad app called “Stuck on Earth”, google maps (street view) and flickr. The combinations of all these led me to produce this shot of Wineglass Bay at Dawn just before the sun rose. The view is from Mount Amos, in the hazards, looking south-east and I had to do a 45 minute hike in the dark with my torch to reach the location. It was freezing ! haha especially with this vicious storm coming in from the Tasman.

I took a lot of great shots in the week I was in Tasmania and can’t wait to share them.
