This weeks blog is two days shots combined, from the Trip in Tasmania. 

Looking back at where the last blog post was viewed 16 countries this time around, with Australia coming in at number one, then Russia followed by the United States, After that Tieing for fourth place was the United Kingdom and Canada, Sixth Place was Spain and France and then all on equal Eighth place was Belguim Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Taiwan, and Vietnam. So 16 countries last time around, we'll see how we go this time. 

This first shot is taken at Low Head at the entrance of the Tamar River showing the pilot station, this is Australia's longest continually operating pilot station.  

This ones overlooking the beach at Badgers head the western side of the Tamar River. Showing the long waveforms as they make their way to the beach stretched out below. 

One of the locals at Narawntapu national park taking time out for a quick scratch. 



Next up the historic town of Richmond and its famous Bridge.

From there we headed southwest and travelling along the Tyenna River we stopped at Westerway just opposite the primary school there, there's a Cafe called the Possum Shed in the river there are Wild Platypus that come out and swim in the river.

Still heading west some of the scenery along the Gorden river road. 

The Amazingly Talaented Madeleine Jones you can see her work at her web site http://www.imagjen.com

Red Knoll Lockout at Lake Pedder.



The next day we drove back to Hobart, More of the scenery on the drive back to Hobart along the Gorden river road. 

Downtown Hobart again Constitution dock.


Sandy Bay Hobart

While at Sandy Bay a small flock of Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos flew over.

Looking back towards Battery Point. 

From there we drove up to the top of Mount Wellington   

The amazing colours and textures of the snow gums near the top of Mount Wellington. 

Then the views from the top  of Mount Wellington.



Back down the bottom again and the view from the other side of the Derwent river looking back at the casino.  

And the Tasman bridge again.


A few more shots around Hobart and the Derwent River.



Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Hobart. This Sanctuary has a couple of decent Devil Runs to the have plenty of room to roam about in. 


We spent a couple of days at Mount Feild National Park with our Accommodation just outside of the park so easy to get in for some night shots and late afternoon shots when the crowds had moved on. Once the People move out the Little Paddy Melons come out and take over. 


Being just outside the park gave me a chance for some light painting of Russell falls. 

This fungi growing on the end of a log looks like a map of Tasmania with a bit of imagination.

Horseshoe  falls    

Just love all the moss covered trees, logs, and rocks under the canopy, I could spend weeks here. 

So that's it for this long overdue blog post and wraps up the Tasmanian trip. since this trip I've done a trip over in WA and plenty of weekend shoots as well so plenty to come in the new year plus my usual end of year top ten shots, which I've started to review now. So stay following for that post in the coming days. 

Thanks for dropping by my blog, back again in a couple of days with my next post.
