Strahan, West Coast Tasmania…

After leaving Cradle Mountain we decided to explore a little part of the west coast of Tasmania, before heading on a rather long loop all the way back to Launceston. Stopping in Strahan, we had lunch at the local Banjo’s cafe, part of a pretty good chain of bakeries found throughout Tasmania, before setting off towards the stunning Nelson Falls.

Yet another of Tasmania’s beautiful waterfalls, Nelson Falls are found in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. A short 15 minute stroll from the carpark bring you to a decent viewing platform to enjoy the 30metre (98 feet) falls. Once again a long exposure was the order of the day, and the 5DSR performed flawlessly… Since I produce most of my panorama’s as 16 bit files as opposed to 8 bit, I am finding that they take a little longer to render due to the increased file size (50.6 Mp per shot), but it is a small price to pay for the incredible detail at the final print stage, as well as the reduced banding issues…
