Journal Entry… noon “…The mist has come in here at the falls. I feel lucky to be in the heart of the Tiers, 1100 metres up, surrounded by cloud and wet pencil pines and mountain and waterfall. You can’t see the mountain at the moment though. It’s a total whiteout from about 20 metres up […]
Recent times on T-Max P3200
Kodak T-max p3200 is becoming one of my favourite 35mm films. After a bit of trial and error, I now shoot it at ISO 800 (it loves light) and develop it normally in Xtol stock solution. It has just the right amount of grain and contrast and stirs up those nostalgic feelings.
SOLO | Cradle Mountain
Myrtles on the King Billy Track, Cradle Mountain | Kodak Gold 200 I had booked my own little Waldheim cabin several months ago. May 21, election and check in day, came around soon enough. I set off early and stopped at Mountain Mumma in Sheffield for some brekky and a brew. The forecast for the […]
PANDANI II | Cradle Mountain
Richea pandanifolia (Pandani) on a late May morning, Cradle Mountain NP.
Hills Hut was built in the 1960s by Bruce Hill and was used for a short time as a base for loggers in the area. After the loggers left it became pretty dilapidated with bits missing here and there, and the Deloraine Walking Club did some work on it in the late 70s. Weather and […]

Deloraine | New Classic EZ400 | Nikon F2
Ever since I can remember I’ve loved being out in the bush. It was our backyard in Reedy Marsh when I was younger. I remember finding fallen trees full of dried bush honeycomb and my brother and I pretending we were explorers, discovering our surroundings for the first time. I have a memory of getting […]

Lunch under a fagus tree, green with spring leaves. Grail Falls, Walls of Jerusalem NP | Hasselblad 500cm | Delta 3200
Bit of a bush bash to get here, but gorgeous to sit behind the waterfall with my cup of tea. Haven’t had much luck with Delta 3200 in the past. It always seemed to lack contrast and be very grainy when developed with Ilford DDX. This particular film was metered at 400 (as it was […]
THE ROAD IN
Devils Gullet, Mersey Forest | Portra 400 | Hasselblad 500cm
My favourite season has passed by once more. This winter saw a bit of snow and a lot of rain. Good rain, preparing the ground for summer. It was a randomly warm day yesterday, the second day of spring with 20° here and 26 down south. It’s back to 11 and rain again today with […]
