Strickland Falls, Tasmania, Australia by JJ Harrison, 8x ND Filter and Circular Polarizer: Neutral Density (ND) filters allow a photographer to limit light without reducing the aperture and then set the shutter speed according to the particular motion desired, in this case to blur the movement of the waterfall. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutral_density_filter #Photography #ND_Filters
Tasmania. "Anthony van Dieman, Governor General of the Dutch East Indies Company, organized in 1642 a grand expedition that would map 'the remaining unknown part of the terrestrial globe.' Abel Tasman, its commander...missed it completely. Tasman's two vessels...sailed right past Australia without once glimpsing its mainland; his course had been too far south. The only part of the country he touched was an island...which he named for his patron: Van Dieman's Land." It was renamed for Tasman.
