On Patrol I FW194648
The Arthur–Pieman Conservation Area is a ribbon of green stretching some 1030 km along the northwest coast of Tasmania. The broader area is known as the 'Tarkine', taking its name from the Tarkiner people – the region's original inhabitants. The Tarkine is Australia's largest tract of temperate rainforest and dates to Gondwana times before Australia split from South America, making it one of the world's most fascinating wilderness areas. I have featured the resident sea eagles that patrol this forested wild river daily in this fine art photograph in a watercolour style.
