Tasmania 2017 Day 5

June 21, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Welcome back to me weekly blog that's not been so weekly lately. 

This week I'll continue the shots from Tasmanian Photography tour earlier in the year.

Since the last blog was released it was viewed in ten different countries, with the highest view rate being Australia this time round and the USA coming in at number two. Coming in at a tie fro the third spot was four Countries the UK, Turkey, Taiwan and South Africa, the final spot was taken up by Ireland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Sweeden. Again a good collection of views from around the world. Thanks for all those that view my blog. 

This time it's Day 5 of my trip and the trip from east coast to west coast via mount Field national park. 

This first shot is along the road at a stand of trees, for once the GPS co-ordinates didn't come into the image from the camera, possibly took the shot to quick for the GPS to establish itself. One I'll have to watch out for in future. But it's between Hobard and Mount Field National Park right beside the road. 

 

This next series is taken in Mount Field National Park, most famous for Russell falls. Everything is so green in this park any fallen trees are moss covered quickly, as is the ground.  The photos don't do this place justice, its one of those areas you can spend days in just soaking up the atmosphere.  

The main track leading to the falls. 

This next shot is of Russell Falls them self. A wall of waterfall. 

The forest floor is littered with fallen trees, logs and branches all covered in the green moss. 

Stairs leading up to the next falls, not for today, but you'll see where these lead to in a few more days time. 

 

At the top of the park is Lake Dobson where these next series of shots are taken as we walked around the lake.  

 

From Mount Feild we drove across the Island to Strahan, stopping along the way for the odd shot. This one the sun was lighting this small stand of trees.

The landscape changes from flat to rugged with each bend in the road. Never staying constant for too long.

We reached Strahan in a wet afternoon with light cold rain falling, but still managed a few shots. This one was taken from the other side of the inlet to the village. 

Back on the village side, the rain had stopped. 

Enough to allow for a bit of a sunset to show though as the light lite up the boat harbour.

Once the sun set and night set in I went out again for some night photography around the village. 

Including an attempt at the milky way, a few clouds about and a bit of light pollution so not the best conditions but I did manage to catch a passing satellite in the lower right corner of the shot. 

 

So that's it for this week's shots on the Tasmanian tour day five, coming up day six. Thanks fro dropping by my blog this week. Back again soon. 

 

Glenn.
