Back from Kangaroo Island


Well, another year, another photo tour - although this one was a little more local.

Kangaroo Island is just off the South Australia coast and is a great place for photography. Ravaged by bushfires in December last year (the result of 30 000 lightning strikes!), it is showing incredible resilience in the regeneration of its national parks. Kangaroo Island was recently the location for a relatively new film starring Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter Fame. The movie is called December Boys, and Daniel does a very convincing Aussie accent in it! I ran the photo tour on behalf of Safari Wise and my old friend Darran Leal. It was a great opportunity to once again stretch my photography legs and hopefully teach a few things in the process.We were up at sunrise on a couple of occasions, but of course you can't be a slave driver all the time. But our sunrises at the Remarkables and at the Cape De Couedic Lighthouse were worth the lack of sleep. Otherwise, we were chasing the last glimmers of light well after sunset on several occasions. It was my second time on the island and without doubt the one that yielded the best photographs.I'll let you know the next I am going eh?

I like all those photos. The first one (of ellen point) is my favourite. Very otherwordly. Kangaroo Island is a very photogenic place.
Is the photo of the wave from the beach just below remarkable rocks?

No mate, but for you to ask that question I presume you have been there! This image was taken from the cliff at Hanson's Bay. It is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen.
