Maria Island is a stunningly tranquil Island off the East Coast of Tasmania. The wildlife is abundant and the ancient geography is amazing. There are fossil cliffs on the beach (featured in David Attenborough's Lonely Plant) and an amazing Dolomite ridge formed from volcanic eruption millions of years ago. It was a penal colony in the 1800's and accommodation is camping style in the old Penitentiary (now called Darlington settlement) - part of which is shown in the night sky shot.
All taken with the Sony A7R and the Sony Vario-Tessar T FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS. For the Landscape shots I generally use the Cokin Z Pro system with either a HiTech 0.9 or 0.6 Soft Grad ND and a Cokin Pro CPL. Most are 3 shot HDR +- 1 EV - except for long exposures.

My girlfriend and I recently spent 3 nights in Iceland. I took my A7 and FE24-70 which I used for all shots bar the Northern Lights. These were taken with a £5 Miranda 24/2.8 from a charity shop.
Wandering around Reykjavic we stumbled on a nice beach area just as the sun was setting.
A lucky break in the weather saw us getting to see the Northern Lights.
Reykjavic seafront again..
Thingvellir National park, where the North American and European continental shelves meet (one of only 2 places on land you can see shelves meet).
Gullfos falls. It was so windy and cold here the water droplets froze by the time they got to you... it actually...
