Photography from a Small Boat Expedition Cruise in Tasmania, Australia

One of my favorite retirement adventures from last year was going on a small boat expedition cruise around the Australian state of Tasmania with Coral Expeditions. I had not visited that gorgeous corner of the world before, and I was very excited to receive their invitation. I discovered that not only is small boat expedition cruising radically different than plying the seas aboard 10,000 passenger floating cities, but it also is relaxing, luxurious and, given the small size of the vessels, affords a bit of flexibility in itineraries.

I was just taking advantage of some down time in Portugal to get caught up in the business of organizing and making available for sale, many of last year’s photographs and I wanted to share some more of the images I made in Australia. It was a beautiful time, and I hope to be able to return in the new season and travel aboard one Coral Expeditions new boats and make some more photographs on a different itinerary. It is hard to imagine a better experience than the last one, but I am always willing to try!

I was lucky enough to be able to make these images because our boat, the Coral Expeditions I, was nimble enough to make it into small anchorages.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
