Finding a quiet spot below the thundering Liffey Falls in northern @Tasmania recently, I was fascinated by this one rock that the moss appeared to favour.
Setting my iphone up on an overhanging tree branch with my Joby #gorillapod was the only steady way I could get this long exposure style shot.
Using Average Camera Pro, 128 images were automatically overlaid to build this image - and I’m very happy with how it turned out.
I love the soft water movement against and around the rough and glistening rocks.

Tassie put on one of her famously colourful sunsets tonight - awesome way to kick off a Saturday night with beautiful friends.
With @jayedevil @loves_laughs and @lifecatchme, and a chance meet n greet with @mattcarne 😊
Hope you have a great night too. Be kind, be safe and be fabulously awesome! (at Howrah Beach)
I got carried away chatting during today’s sunrise on Mt Wellington, so here’s one from Tuesday’s stunner!
It was great to catch up with a couple of lovely Sydney ladies today on the mountain, Katie @KatieMayors and Sarah-Jane @SarahJane_Edis, before they head off and continue exploring Tassie.
If you’re a listener of Bondi Beach Radio in Sydney, Katie hosts the Wanderlust travel show on Wednesday nights - and the next show will feature an interview with myself and @jayedevil about our instagramming experience - thanks Katie, that’s definitely my first interview done on top of a mountain!

Hello weekend, it’s a pleasure to see you again!
Water so blue and clear seems unnatural, but colourful, stunning nature is what @Tasmania does best, and the Bay of Fires region on the east coast is no exception.
At a place like this you can’t help but relax and feel a sense of calm.
Just bring a hat, sunglasses and shorts. Just like the ones @itsworthashot here is wearing… Oh.
Wild, beautiful animals in their natural habitat - doesn’t get much nicer than that!
That’s what Narawntapu national park on @Tasmania’s north coast is known for, and the reason I wanted to take Matt @itsworthashot there at sundown, on our back roads tour of this area last week.
This guy is a forester kangaroo, Tassie’s only true kangaroo species. I think they’re just adorable, too.
They’re most likely to be out and about just before sunset - same time that the wombats become more active! If you want the best chance of seeing our wildlife in the wild, head here.
It’s Friday, so almost time to cut the ropes and head out on a weekend adventure!
A voyage on the high seas? A hike through a mountain range?
What have you got planned? Can I come? Haha!
I’d like to think this little dinghy would have many stories to tell of it’s adventures, the people it has carried and the secrets it holds.
You can find it in Binalong Bay on @Tasmania’s east coast near the town of St Helens. It’s not hard to find - it’s beside the main street!
Have you heard about the epic state-wide @queensland instameet coming up?
On Saturday October 4 you can join me in person in Townsville - or with hundreds of other IGers at over 50 locations around the sunshine state, from coast to outback!
I’ll be at Castle Hill for sunrise and on The Strand for sunset - come to one, or both!
I’m excited to shoot with the awesome local igers, and any visitors who happen to be there that day.
All are encouraged to join in!
Check out www.meetup.com/QueenslandInstammeet for all the locations and details.
Let me know in the comments below where you’ll be if you’re getting involved :)
Some places are so beautiful, you can’t help but put down your camera and just soak up the moment - the sounds, the smells, the gentle breeze.
It’s an experience of bliss and contentment.
Then you reach for your phone or camera and snap away like a crazy person, trying to capture it just as you saw it! Or is that just me? Haha!
Binalong Bay on @Tasmania’s east coast is such a place. This time of year you’re lucky (unlucky?) to see another person, or even see footprints in the sand.
Such places and moments are special and rare in this crazy world, but Tassie seems to have these opportunities by the bay full. And you don’t have to search hard to find them. Just find a local, strike up a conversation, and soon the best spots will be shared.
The new app from Instagram, Hyperlapse, seems to be getting a fair bit of coverage due to it’s awesome timelapse-from-video feature, and rightly so.
Personally, I’m also loving it’s ability to stabilise real-time video, making handheld panning and movement with an iPhone smooth and pleasing to watch.
At northern @Tasmania’s beautiful Liffey Falls last week I had a go at trying out the app, mostly involving stalking Matt @itsworthashot up and down the river haha!
The falls are near Launceston, the states second biggest city, and on the way to the islands stunning highland lakes region.
Liffey Falls in @tasmania’s north are one of the most spectacular in the state, and only an hour from Launceston.
Tourists follow the winding path through the mossy forest, downstream along the river to the mighty falls. @itsworthashot and I did that too and loved the majestic cascades, and how the river has shaped the valley.
After our walk, we ventured up stream - following the river away from the car park, the tourists and any signs of civilisation.
We found untouched - and most likely un-photographed - beautiful scenes along the river, including moss covering almost every surface!
It was a great spot to just relax, but I also took the opportunity to set my iPhone up to do some ‘long exposures’ of the rushing water. This is probably one of my favourites from that location.
There is a bridge and car park just before you get to the Liffey Falls main car park - that’s where we ventured up stream from.
