The Wrest Point Art Awards are on tomorrow until Sunday from 10am until 6pm. The exhibition is located in the Boardwalk Gallery on the water’s edge, adjacent to Pier One Restaurant and Bar, Wrest Point, Hobart.

Make sure you go and have a look if you are in Hobart over the weekend.

Last year I won the Photo Media category with the image below.


This year I entered ‘Milky Way and moonset over Wineglass Bay‘. I shot this image in January while I was aurora chasing. Prints are available here.


Sydney on a mobile phone

By Loic Le Guilly

I spent the weekend in Sydney and I thought I’d leave the big camera home and just use my new mobile phone (HTC One M8) to grab some snaps.

I’m impressed with the results. It certainly isn’t a Nikon D800 but for something that fits in your pocket it is great.

The images below are straight from the camera with no editing apart from resizing and a bit of cropping on a couple of them. All of them were shot handheld.

The little girl kept saying “skull… skull… skull”. I had to point out that in fact they are astronauts. 😉
