During my recent visit to Tasmania I took the opportunity to have a look around the West Coast. One of the wildest coastlines in the world,often lashed by the fury of the Roaring Forties and the Southern Ocean it is a wilderness that is populated by small settlements of hardy fishermen and miners.
Conditions conspired against me with one day of incessant rain and the next day of rather flat lighting but hopefully these couple of images give you an idea of what is is like!
The second image was taken just before I slipped on a piece of kelp, went a over t and my brand new Canon 60D with a 10-22mm hit the rocks! Managed to pick it up just before a wave claimed it, camera survived with a cracked LCD but the lens was bent out of shape as well as the remote shutter release. Lucky I didn’t have the 24-105 L series attached!
I reckon you could have heard some very loud four letter words over on the East Coast!
