Cape Leeuwin and an old Waterwheel

Cape Leeuwin is South of Perth in Western Australia and mostly known for being the point the Indian and Southern Oceans meet,

There is also a lighthouse and nearby are the remain of an old waterwheel – the trough for which makes for, I think, an interesting shot!

Into the Labyrinth

No need to Dance the Magic Dance, to enter the labyrinth on the Pine Valley side track when walking the Overland Track in Tasmania. But with a bit of a climb there are amazing views of the surrounding ranges and wonderful lakes.

Well worth the side trip of you’re walking the Overland!

West Pelion as seen from the Overland Track

Updates have been quiet over the past few weeks as i’ve been on the Overland Track in Tasmania for seven days hiking.

The focus was hiking rather than photography but there will be a couple of shots featured.

This one features the mountain of West Pelion and a nice little reflection in a pool of water.

Tapotupotu conservation reserve at Cape Reinga, New Zealand

Just a few minutes away from Cape Reinga is this wonderful bay – Tapotupotu conservation. It’s the closest camping location to Cape Reinga itself and the cove has amazingly clear water.

Probably not the best swimming beach in the world though as quite a lot of rips running across the beach.

Clouds Gather on the Milford Track

The morning of the day that forced DOC to hold hikers at the hut they were at and cancelled an entire days hikers starting the track. It only happened once in the 2015/2016 season and this really was the calm before all the rain fell!

Rainy Days on the Milford Track

The Milford Track was closed recently for the first time this season due to flooding. Those of us trapped on the track at the time were held at our huts, but we did manage to escape for short day walks on non flooded sections.

Those bits that were impassable had water over head height and raging rivers across the track.

But Mintaro Hut is a great place for a 4 day, 3 night stay!
