Planning trips this year

It has been almost 7 years since I was last in Tasmania and I am so excited that this year I am going back. Woohoo.

I have seen quite a bit of Tasmania in the first two visits, but this time we are going to explore the northwest corner.

That areas has a lot of rainforests and we are going to explore a lot of them.

I saw this video by British photographer Neil Burnell. I’m going to show you here. When I saw it I knew I wanted to go back, so I contacted my friend and said I think we need to explore the rainforests and she said okay let’s do it. So we are.

It is very mystical and I want to see what sort of images I could get from the rainforests in Tasmania. This video and his photos have really inspired me.

Neil Burnell has a website where you can see more of his work, click here.

I tried taking some photos of the rainforests around Dove Lake when I was there the first time. They weren’t great because I really should have used a tripod. I will be making sure I take mine with me this year.

I am hoping after the trip that I have a great collection of rainforest images. I can’t wait to go and explore.

  1. I loved Tasmania so much. My memories of double rainbows, chill mornings with cows standing half in and half out of mist, twisty mountain roads and breathtaking bays and lakes….look forward to whatever you choose to share. Have a beautiful trip.

  2. Your photos are still breathtaking. They bring tears to my eyes. I own three tripods and I never use them. I keep intending to, but I think I really need a sturdier one. I keep buying lightweight tripods, but they are also very SHAKY tripods. I don’t like putting my cameras on any of them.

    1. Thank you Marilyn. Yeah you can’t underestimate how important a sturdy tripod it. Once you get one you have it for many many years.

  3. Wow, that’s a very beautiful place, Leanne! You are blessed to be going there. ❤️😊

    1. It seems like a wonderful place that Neil took photos, which i think is in England. Rainforests are great, but I like eerie too. Thank you Sue.

  4. Almost increadible that there are still places like this on earth. I can understand your wish to explore this part of Tasmania and as your friend agreed…. start planning the trip ! I’m sure you will have an unforgetable time and make unique pictures too.

    1. It has been a national park for many many years, so it is wonderful that we can do and visit it. I’m sure we will Rudi, thank you.

    1. I will Thomas, though unlikely now, I don’t think I will be travelling overseas again. Though I have heard that Vermont is beautiful.
