Tarkine Patrol

An image from the Pieman River and poem inspired by a trip to the Tarkine in 2015 I will be taking a small group of photographers through the Tarkine in a few weeks and we are all excited as a child’s first visit to a candy store.  None the less as with many of Australia’s […]

Dry Sclerophyll Forests

2 December, 1642 … an abundance of excellent timber, and a gently sloping watercourse in a barren valley … they had seen two trees about 2 or 2.5 fathoms [c. 4 metres] in thickness, measuring from 60 to 65 feet [22 metres] from the ground to the lowermost branches … That on the ground they […]

Cool-temperate Rainforests

“The Tasmanian temperate rainforest is richer in moss and lichen species than in higher plants. These lower plants cover rock, soil and trunk of myrtle [Nothofagus cunninghamii], sassafras [Atherosperma moschatum], leatherwood [Eucryphia lucida], horizontal [scrub] [Anadopetalum biglandulosum], celery-top pine [Phyllocladus aspleniifolius], Huon pine and other smaller tree and shrub species.

These trees average about ten per acre [25 per hectare]; their […]

I had one noble [red] cedar measured, which measured 21 feet [6.3 metres] in circumference […]

Wildlife Conservation – a journey towards empathy

Conservation – I’m just one person…

Late in 2007, I was invited to join a group of deeply concerned nature photographers to protest old-growth forest tree-felling in the Upper Florentine Valley in Tasmania’s south-west. We wanted to raise public awareness of what was going to happen to this wonderful old-growth forest beside the World-Heritage-listed Southwest National Park. We had some competition, […]
