My Hometown

I was born in Hobart and have lived here all my life,

so it seems fitting that i should share some of my photography from the local area.

I hope you enjoy viewing them.

Hobarts Bowen Bridge and its reflections across the Derwent River at sunset

Another angle of the bridge from the same day, looking south towards Hobart City.

Hobarts Bowen Bridge, reflecting the orange sunset glow. Driving home from work I was presented with the great colours and reflections, and as always, the camera was “riding shotgun”

    Really appreciate the first image. Wonderful composition and light. Yet to visit Hobart. It is bit hard to get to from the UK. When i get home to Melbourne, some holidays to Tazy are on the cards.

    Thanks for the comments guys, feel free to give opinions/ critique as you see fit. I’m still trying to learn the craft, so any pointers from those in the field will be warmly received!!

    if you ever do make it to the state and need some info on places to see/ go/ stay, just shoot an e-mail and i’m happy to offer advice. (I have friends/ family in hospitality too!!)
