The mountains are calling my name, urging me to escape back to reality. This is the view you will find on your way to Frenchmans Cap, in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

"This 4 day – 46km hike takes you to one of the most remarkable mountain peaks in South-West Tasmania. 
Please note: The Frenchmans Cap track is a challenging walk in a region of Tasmania exposed to harsh weather conditions at any time of the year. Access to the summit is quite exposed and should not be attempted in adverse weather. Walkers must be fully self-sufficient, well-equipped and experienced. 
The track passes buttongrass plains, unusual rainforest where Huon pine grows alongside King Billy pine, and spectacular glacial valleys, up to Lake Tahune, perched under the huge and spectacular cliff face of Frenchmans Cap. The silvery Precambrian quartzite is some of Australia’s oldest exposed rock."

Now that the dust have settled a bit I would like to say a few things. (Get ready for some name dropping)
I was very honored to receive the prize of Overall Winner during the Tasmanian Night Sky Photography Awards, held at Wild Island Tasmania.
It was a great evening, with stunning images on display. A huge congratulations to the team at Wild Island for putting together such an successful event. I would like to congratulate all the finalists who got their images hanging on the walls, and in particular the following winners. Dan Broun for the Night Sky Category. Jason L. Stephens (Photography) for the Star Trail Category. Peter Sayers for the Panoramic Category. Ian Stewart for the Time lapse Category, Sohee Kim for the Aurora Category, James Garlick - Photographer for the Bioluminescence Category and Cordell Richardson for the Young photographer Category.
Big thanks to the judges Rob Blakers, Margaret Sonnemann, Nick Monk Photography, Loic Le Guilly / Photographer and Jonathan Esling Photography for volunteering their time, and ultimately voting for me. smile emoticon
Thanks Richard Sampson for the tunes on the night. You got us all in the mood for the after party. smile emoticon
Thanks also to Fraser Johnston and the very professional team Crow's Nest for filming the evening, and Rob Blakers for capturing the moments on camera.
Thanks to all the sponsors who so generously supplied the great prizes. Hobart Imaging, Samyang Optics Australia, Walch Optics, SYRP, Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, Tasmania 40 Degrees South, Art Poster - Imagetec and 360Precision
I'm almost done, stay with me. A big thanks to all my photography friends for encouraging me and believing in me.
And finally, I would like to thank my biggest fan, and live partner Erin O'Brien. Erin, you are awesome, and without you I would not be where I am today, and for that I am truly thankful. You believe in me, even at times when I don't, and always support me and encourage me to get our there and have a go. You are my best friend and I am so lucky to have you in my life!
Here's to next year!

Tsukiji Market (築地市場, Tsukiji Shijō)
 
"Tsukiji Market is best known as one of the world's largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day.
 
A visit to Tsukiji Market is best combined with a fresh sushi breakfast or lunch at one of the local restaurants. There are restaurants both in the inner and outer market area, which are typically open from 5:00 in the morning to around noon or early afternoon."
 
And that is exactly what we did. Raw fish for breakfast

Waterfalls

Tasmania has lots of wonderful waterfalls scattered all around the place. It's always interesting re-visiting falls in different times of the year. I have never seen this particular waterfall with so much water coming down.

I'm trying to do a bit of a cleanup on my hard drives, and came across this photo from July 2011.
I remember the night well. After work on the Friday I jumped in my little car and went for a drive. I had my camera and tripod, but not much else. Didn't really know where I wanted to go, just knew I wanted to head somewhere nice to take some photos. 6 Hours later I ended up at Cradle Mountain. The conditions were perfect. I took this photo at 1am, along with many others on the night, including a short time-lapse.
I then "slept" in my car in the carpark for a few hours, hoping to catch the sunrise, but by morning the weather had changed completely, and it was all foggy and misty. Well, the story goes on, but I might save the rest of it for another day...

Akihabara (秋葉原)

"Also called Akiba after a former local shrine, is a district in central Tokyo that is famous for its many electronics shops. In more recent years, Akihabara has gained recognition as the center of Japan's otaku (diehard fan) culture, and many shops and establishments devoted to anime and manga are now dispersed among the electronic stores in the district."

Introduction
Hi. My name is Francois Fourie, and I'm addicted to photography.  I'm here because I can't fight the urge to take pictures, and can't help myself from sharing them.  Ok, now that that's out of the way...I'm  South African born, living in Tasmania, Australia. I left my home Country in '97 and backpacked around the world for about 10 years.  Now I find myself living a regular life.
One day I would love to pack my gear, and just hit the road on a week/month/year/life long adventure, taking pictures and visiting places I havent been to before
