Growing up in Hobart, the nearby Mt Field National Park has always held a special place in my heart. It’s almost like a “Best Of Tasmanian Wilderness” only 50 minutes from the capital city. The Tarn Shelf, in the alpine reaches of the park exudes a primeval atmosphere. Offsetting the rocks, small lakes and twisted Pencil Pines, delicate orchids like the Alpine Finger Orchid (Caladenia Alpina) emerge in the sheltered areas of the Tarn Shelf. I chose to photograph this stunning orchid as it evokes one of the defining aspects of Tasmania’s landscape; delicate beauty flourishing in a seemingly hostile environment.
