Franklin Gordon

After a week of work in Tasmania, I grabbed an opportunity to visit Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Dense rainforest pockets, mossy vales, pristine waterways, vast landscapes and endless skies; it was stunning and exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to get back there […]

The devil in Tassie

Autumn. I was visiting Tasmania for the first time. It was unseasonally warm. The apple isle had been in the grip of an extended hot season. As always in Australia, the resulting storms and lightning strikes had started many fires. Wide, rolling fires, hard to […]

No place like home.

May 2015. Last week I hosted a gathering of my work team. We’re a relatively new group – two teams combined into one – so it was important that we spend time together, get to know each other and collaborate on our team plan. I […]

A story, photography and me.
