Paterson Barracks

One of the oldest surviving buildings in Launceston, PatersonBarracks was built in 1828, and was described at the time as thevery best brick building in Van Diemen’s Land.

As a commissariat store, it was designed to house food and supplies for the militaryand government officials in the young settlement, as well as forthe free settlers and convicts.The building was used by the Tasmanian volunteer forces, andthe Launceston Volunteer Artillery Corps which used the buildingfrom 1860.

Today it is home to Launceston’s cadet units andthe 16th Field Battery of the Royal Australian Artillery, the oldestartillery unit in the Australian Army, and the longest continuallyserving unit in Australia.

Blood Moon

Blood Moon

October 8th 2014 Total Luna eclipse. Like everyone else, I decided to take some pictures of the moon whilst it was in the shadow, causing it to appear red.

The image looked fine, and when I went downstairs to download the files, the poster that I had been printing was still on my desktop. Our new book Launceston a sense of Place has the iconic Launceston Post office clock tower on the cover and I decided to have a bit of a play on photoshop to see if I could make the picture of the moon a bit more interesting. The resulting image seemed to gather a lot of attention and praise, so we have released a web special print for anyone who would like to own their own copy of the image.

The print is available for a limited time as a 400X580 mm colour print with a 90mm white border, ready for framing. It has been signed, stamped and titled "Blood Moon, Launceston 8th October 2014"

Blue Stone Bay, Freycinet

Blue Stone Bay, Freycinet

Early morning at Blue stone bay in Tasmania's Freycinet National Park on the East coast.

 

Accessible only by 4 wheel drive, we had arrived in the dark and stumbled our way down to the water to set up for dawn

The beautiful rounded boulders are a perfect counter to the rugged coastline and incoming tide. I remember that it was cold that morning and the rocks were slippery . My brother David was with me so I sent him out onto the rocks to add a human element to the picture
