King Island Photographic Workshop November 29th – December 1st 2013

Due to popular demand and extra bookings, I decided to run a second late spring photographic workshop last weekend on King Island, taking advantage of the fine weather and coastal bloom of flowers that appear at this time of the year. Everyone enjoyed the great locations both around the lagoons and along the various coastlines. The weather remained fine enough to visit the penguin colony at dusk and get some images of the little darlings waddling home with bellies full of fish. Great company and lots of delicious food completed the wonderful weekend of photography. I actually stayed on a few days more and took advantage of the Spring blooms, especially at my secret spot. The flowers here are exceptional, given that it’s a shearwater colony and their droppings fertilize the karkalla or Carpobrotus rossii. Hard to get to and a bit of a trek as its out of the way and not near any roads, plus its a tiger snake haven and you also need to go at low tide to negotiate the huge boulders!  I spent considerable time here and took advantage of the sunny weather which opens the flowers up fully and makes for a magnificent scene in a kaleidoscope of colour.
