cold starts...

I have a friend who has a local radio show and during his Thursday morning show he put out a call for me provide him with a photo of the mornings sunrise. 
Here's what I could provide him with my reluctant 6 year old assistant in tow.
A big thanks to my gorgeous friend for making me a coffee whilst I walked around her farm and to the assistant for simply been the ace little thing that she is.
stay warm...........janis xx

heading south...

I've just returned from an amazing long weekend in Tasmania where I attended the Australian Institue of Professional Photographers annual conference.

 The highlight for me was the incredible workshop on Bruny Island with the talented Richard Bennet and Jill Mure. 

Hobart is seriously gorgeous even with it's freezing conditions and persistant rain and Bruny Island - well it's just paradise.

Any boat rides that involve a full length wet weather suit is bound to be fun!

The boat ride to Bruny was both fast and rough however incredibly picturesque. 

Richard Bennet - an incredibly talented inspiration who was so forthcoming with help and advice. 

Not a bad spot to cook up the catch of the day. 

Yum, thanks for the amazing food Jill Mure.

I hope to visit again when the weather is a little kinder - when I can climb to this point and not be saturated from the rain.

the simple things... we asked the 6 year old what she wanted to do on this Queens Birthday public holiday...and well a sausage sizzle lunch at Coolart was her request. 

I love that she keeping it simple and easy and am hoping that she stays like this forever xx
