Part One of Joel's Tasmania Field Trip

What a huge 3 week pathfinder journey this was!

Thousands of kms on the van's speedometer, an overnight ferry trip, snowboarding, hiking, camping in negative temperatures... so many highlights.

It will go down as one of my favorite field trips of all time. And all of the photos I'm sharing today are just from the first leg of the trip.

One thing's for certain: Tasmania is a radically beautiful place to explore and to shoot in.

I started the trip by venturing and snowboarding around Ben Lomond National Park for 2 days.

I only scratched the surface of all the brilliant views the park has to offer.

It just gives me another great reason to come back, as if I need the excuse.

Once we finished exploring in Ben Lomond National Park, we headed toward Walls of Jerusalem National Park, but Google Maps took us about 2 hours off the beaten trail. I guess next time we'll follow good ol' paper maps instead. 

We unfortunately didn’t end up at the national park, but it gave us the opportunity to wander a bit and find a few locations not frequently seen by tourists. We stumbled upon a pretty awesome forest near an open lake which made for some cool photos.

After exploring a path not even Google Maps could take us to, we drove to Cradle Mountain a few days prior to an elopement.

Stay tuned next week for photos from the elopement!
