Another morning at Green Point spent by myself in the pre-dawn light. An early morning shoot in these sort of conditions is almost a meditational experience. A total relaxation and cleansing of the mind when you get “in the zone”. It’s not unusual for an hour or more to slip by before I have noticed.

Green Point, Marrawah, Tasmania with the ever present Mt Cameron in the distance.

    Great image Garth. How good is the moss on these rocks, brilliant

  • Thank you Maxwell, yes its a nice seasonal variation. Bare rock to green mossy weed, to brown stringy weed and back to bare rock.
