Vedder Wilderness Lodge and Surrounds slide show

The Gap St

As some of you are aware, we spent last weekend down at the Lake Pedder Wilderness Lodge as guests of one of the new operators down there, Chris Podesta.

Chris looked after us very well and shared his vision for the lodge, which I am sure will be a success, given his drive and enthusiasm.

The video is a quick snapshot of the experiences to be had in the region, but certainly only just that…a quick snap shot!

You can see the video here

Oscar and the Reeds Oscar and the Rainbow

Our guide, Chris Podesta, has a great little dog called Oscar, who ended up being the star of the show yesterday morning.

Such a vibrant little dog and totally devoted to his master.

On the way to this location, which is called Ted’s beach, Chris was telling me how he had seen a white rainbow the previous day.

Order one white rainbow to go and boom! Very cool!

New Photographers Paradise found!

Lee and I are currently in Tasmania as the guest of a wonderful young fella by the name of Chris Podesta and staying at the Lake Pedder Lodge.

Chris and a few of his mates are about to take over the running of the lodge from September 1st and I can just about guarantee all my Photog mates out there that this area is about to become the new Iceland!

I have only been here for a day now and have seen a sweet array of epic landscapes, a small sample of which are posted above in this post.

Chris will be offering comfortable and affordable accommodation here at the lodge from September 1 and will be offering guided photography tours to locations we have found together during my visit.

Down the track a bit I will also be coming back and looking at coaching here from time to time I think as well.

Last night I had the opportunity to take my new Astronomy camera for a run, the D810a supplied to me by Saul Frank from Camera Electronics.

What a weapon that bit of kit is!

I will do a full review of that body as time permits, but for now, I think it is fair to say that the camera rocks and does everything the reviews said it would.

Check out the detail in those stars!

The star shots were shot at 6400 ISO, F2.8 and 20 second exposures….boom! šŸ™‚

I have captured soooo much epic material here in just 24 hours, so plenty more to come!

Stay Tuned!

Lake Pedder Reflections

On the way back from Lake Pedder the fog started to lift quite quickly, but managed to capture this very ‘reflective’ image in time before it all burned totally away.

It was somewhat difficult scoping these locations on the way out as it was literally pea soup and if I had known what i know now about what is out there I would have played things a little differently, but I guess that is the challenge of any landscape photographer, which is to deal with the hand that is dealt!!!

Lake Pedder North

On the way out to Gordon Dam, the fog was finally lifting and this little scene presented itself to me.

My wife says it is my best yet from the trip to Tasmania, so it therefore must be as wives are always right eh!

The image definitely lent itself to Black and White so looking fwd to some comments from the Black and White Guru Mr. Spool on this one as to how I faired!
