Published Photo


It’s always cool when what you do gets published.

A few days ago, The Mercury (a local newspaper) contacted me and asked if they could re-use a picture I took for a feature article on 25 Tasmanian Hidden Tourism Gems. The picture was one I took of Little Blue Lake, in Tasmania’s North East. It was number 16 on the list.

Unfortunately you have to be a subscriber to access the article, but here’s the picture they used:

Little Blue Lake and Mt Cameron. Picture: PETE DIGGINS



And the Blurb:


Little Blue Lake delivers exactly what it promises. About an hour and a half from Launceston, past Derby, the lake is a vivid turquoise thanks to high mineral content in the water from the old mines of Mt Cameron. Little Blue Lake is highly instagrammable and stunning on a clear day. But be warned: it is not safe for swimming. Pack a picnic and take your new profile pic instead. When you’re done, double back to Derby for lunch or try the Scottsdale Bakery. Well worth the trip.


Also well worth the trip in nearby Derby is the Derby Tunnel, Derby River Derby and heaps of Mountain Bike trails.

I recently started submitting some pictures I’d taken on my treks to iStock.

It’s kinda fun having a ‘portfolio’…

It shows me as being in the United States. Hopefully the location will correct itself soon…!
