I took this self portrait panorama of myself hiking in one of Australia’s most amazing national parks, Wilsons Promontory. It simply can’t be beaten for the amount of phenomenal beaches in what is a relatively small area occupying the southernmost tip of mainland Australia. What makes it even more awesome is that many of those beaches can only be accessed by hiking a minimum of 10km, which generally means the crowds stay away. Those hikes also take you through some stunning mountainous terrain with spectacular views of cliffs, bays, beaches, offshore islands, dense forests and omnipresent gigantic granite boulders. Each time I go there I’m blown away and this visit was no exception.
