The inspiring exhibition of photographic works by local naturalist Alan ‘Curly’ Hartup has just concluded.

The exhibition opened a few weeks ago, on a fine Saturday afternoon. The platform was jam-packed – locals turned out, bolstered by what seemed to be a gathering of members of the Hartup family from as far afield as NSW and Melbourne.

Speakers described Curly’s passion and skill with his cameras in solving the challenges of nature photography in an era prior to digital technology.

What a special way of honoring the man and his dedication to wildlife photography.
