If a picture is worth 1,000 words… today we bring you a bucket-load of value about Liffey Falls, thanks to photographer Dan Fellow of Tasmania Photos.
Liffey Falls: the Perfect Subject
photos by Dan Fellow
We’ve featured information about Liffey Falls via Think Tasmania’s website before. Mike Fry, photo-journalist and co-owner of Ormiston House Bed and Breakfast in Strahan wrote a great piece about the popular tourist attraction south of Deloraine in the state’s north.
Liffey Falls was also a popular inclusion in our waterfall challenge, part of the “Best in Tasmania” series we published a while back. Greg and Rachel Power from Waterfalls Cafe at Mt Field National Park would vote Russell Falls as the prettiest waterfall in Tassie every single time; many others would nominate Liffey as equally impressive.
The officials at Tasmania Parks and Wildlife (managers of Liffey Falls) have this to say about the tourism icon…
Liffey Falls State Reserve is nestled within cool temperate rainforest on the slopes of the Great Western Tiers. Framed by the dominant species of Tasmania’s cool temperate rainforests – myrtle, sassafrass and leatherwood, the falls are understandably a popular spot among both Tasmanians and visitors alike. A nature walk leads from a picnic area near the carpark down through forests of towering eucalypts and tree ferns to the falls. A number of smaller falls are passed along the way.
Dan Fellow: Tasmania Photos
We featured another collection of popular images from the lens of Dan Fellow recently, from a photo-shoot he conducted at Port Arthur Convict Settlement on the Tasman Peninsula. From the north to the south of Tasmania; from the east to the west of Tasmania, Dan has been traversing the countryside capturing photos and experimenting with brand new equipment. Think Tasmania readers are the beneficiary of his fine tourism photography.
Dan’s recently acquired photographic equipment includes a new lens system. The effect achieved is shown in some of these images of Liffey Falls. The new lens allows everything to be simultaneously in sharp focus and wide angle from close to the face out to infinity. Impressive!
While we may not understand the technical benefits of Dan’s new camera, we can certainly appreciate the quality of the end product. We hope you enjoy this collection too; without a shadow of doubt, the images showcase the features of Liffey Falls very nicely. Maybe they’ll inspire you to visit in person and capture your own shots?
Dan Fellow would welcome enquiries from any business owner looking to acquire the professional services of Tasmania Photos.
