Took this on a three day sea kayak trip I did around Wilsons Promontory’s north end in January. On the last night we stayed at the beautiful Tin Mine Cove and witnessed a gorgeous sunset followed by this lovely post sunset glow. At the time I was so busy taking the photo I didn’t actually realize that I was taking a shot of two boats moored side by side and only clicked the next morning after talking to the yachty of the second boat (they had dinner together then moored apart for the night). The island in the background is called Doughboy Island.

Australia’s rugged landscape is an important part of my life and over many years I have explored some of the more remote parts of it on foot, ski, kayak and rope. I usually travel alone so I can take my time capturing the essence of these places without distraction. Life slows down and after a while I feel like I begin to merge with the land, nature takes me into her confidence and changes me. I hope you enjoy the fruit of these excursions.

    This is sooooo beautiful Travis. Sounds like a great trip to do (if you’ve got the arm muscles) :)

  • If the tide and winds are in your favor its not too hard but on the other hand if your fighting these elements it would come in as one of the most strenuous things I’ve ever done. The rewards are truly sublime however, ta.
