I spent most of Australia Day on board a magnificent boat called the 'True North'. This is well and truly how to have a holiday cruise, if you have the money! More info can be found here: http:/​/​www.​northstarcruises.​com.​au/​ Many thanks to Mark Stothard & Christian Fletcher, in particular, for organising it - especially to Mark for letting 100 strangers trample all over his boat :-)

Anyway, the reason for the trip (well, the 'excuse') was a photographic workshop. Lots of eminent photographers there and several extra-eminent of them gave talks sharing their knowledge.

The attached photo's are my efforts from the day. My selection of favourites can be found in the 'True North 2010 - Favourites' collection.
