Moods of Mount Wellington

While house-sitting earlier this year I framed a view of kunanyi/Mount Wellington through the open office window of the house in Hobart, Tasmania. The camera and tripod stayed put for a month and I clicked the shutter every half hour in daylight when I was around and remembered! This is the result - 20 photos shot on the half hour between 0730 to 1700 none from the same day between May 6 and June 6. Music by Open Source Trio. Enjoy!

It’s been a little while in final production but the children’s book I’ve collaborated on featuring my photo illustrations from the Australasian Antarctic Expedition earlier this year is now available at the Blurb website. It prints up beautifully and feedback from ‘test parents’ and their kiddies has been really positive. Check it out and if you like it please share and perhaps even buy it! All feedback welcome.

Based on the true story of the contemporary Australasian Antarctic Expedition this delightful book is for children aged 5 to 9 years but all readers with a love of adventure and a desire to learn about Antarctica will enjoy it. In late 2013 the ice strengthened ship Akademik Shokalskiy became stuck in thick pack ice at the edge of East Antarctica. The fate of the ship’s crew and the scientists and tourists aboard became the focus of a world-wide media frenzy over the New Year. Little known is that there was a very special passenger aboard the ship and, along with colorful photo illustrations, in this book ‘Stay’ the dog, tells us his unique story of the stranding and subsequent dramatic rescue. While helping his friends to study the icy world around them, through the eyes of ‘Stay’ we learn about the beautiful and climactically important frozen continent at the bottom of the world and meet the cheeky penguins and other animals who live there.
