This is the stunning photograph that is hanging over my desk providing inspiration for the current story. It’s assembled from a great many individual shots by an absolute genius, photographer Alan Lesheim, and it was taken in the stunning Florentine Valley, in Tasmania. It’s a whopper of a print, and the detail is just boggling (and yes, the Angel is really there, not dropped in). The artist is Allana Beltran, who can often be found performing at the Salamanca markets in Hobart. There is a story behind this as Allana made an amazing and brave stand against the logging of the Weld Valley. There is some incredibly haunting imagery, and this, along with being in the Florentine Valley over the past couple of years, has inspired the new story.

How could they log a place so beautiful?
Look Alan Lesheim up on Facebook, his photo galleries there are just breathtaking. Alas he doesn’t have a personal website yet (but I’m nagging him). It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve been. The place is in a state of flux at the moment, so hopefully with the Green election result some of these areas may yet be saved.
