How beautiful are these faces of Myanmar? Open, inquisitive, intrigued, bemused, and for the little guy on the left, perhaps a little bewildered at us and our cameras. I visited Myanmar (formerly Burma) for the first time recently and was touched by the genuine warmth and friendliness of the Burmese people. Tourism is still in its infancy here and the locals are as intrigued by foreigners as we are interested in them. Beaming smiles from faces painted with thanaka, the traditional sunscreen/makeup, greeted us at Ahara Thuka market outside the new capital of Nay Pyi Taw, where I captured this group of children looking after each other. The market was bustling with industrious families working together and offered and window in the life of the hard-working rural community.

Instagram - BriarsTravelBeatAs we walked around Melaleuca Lagoon in Bathurst Harbour, Port Davey, in Tasmania’s Southwest National Park, the clouds came over and washed this tranquil scene with dramatic monochrome light. Thanks to @tasmanian_boat_charters and @andrewbrucewilson for helping us capture images like these. Southwest National Park is one big dramatic landscape, and you can see so much on a private boat charter. @nzhtravel @tasmania #portdavey #expeditioncruising #waterviewKnowing where to get the best photos involves local knowledge and there was plenty of that aboard @tasmanian_boat_charters in Southwest National Park with photographer @andrewbrucewilson and guide @petermarmion onboard. Sometimes the weather didn’t play ball though! But the scenery was still stunning. #photographytour #expeditioncruising #tasmaniaNature paints stunning #abstract images if we take the time to slow down and look for the #patterns - the reeds, the ripples, the reflections. An expedition cruise aboard @tasmanian_boat_charters allows you to do just that in stunning Southwest National Park in @tasmania where nature speaks for itself. #expeditioncruising #australiaExploring Bathurst Harbour in @tasmanian_boat_charters tender means going where few have gone before. Narrow gorges, shallow bays, secret rivers. It also means going ashore to climb hills, cross button grass plains and marsupial lawns. #southwestnationalpark #bathurstharbour #expeditioncruising #tasmania
