In 2010, I had the opportunity to hike and photograph two different Islands on opposite sides of our world:
In May, I spent 2 weeks hiking the TGO Challenge after spending months in preparation. This is a self-planned, self-supported 320km hike across Scotland from West to East.
In October, I joined a group of photo friends on a 10 day visit to Tasmania’s wild west coast.
As is often the case, neither trip was perfect for photography. In Scotland, I was faced with a daily average walking budget of 20-30km carrying full kit, and in Tasmania the wind and rain reduced our photo taking opportunities considerably.
In any case, both trips were terrific, and photos were taken, some of them good enough to show here in this calendar. Most of the images are from the Scotland trip.
