Back down to the Tarkine Coast…. more photos of the Tasmania I love.


I can’t get too much of this place. The weather is so changeable, the play of light fantastic. And the colours!!!! Lichen in reds, yellows, oranges, green and white.  Twisted tree trunks and mounds of green vegetation crouching in the wind. Energetic deep blue seas decorated with brilliant white foam.  And skies full of light then hidden by threatening clouds. A photographer’s delight.IMG_8858

One Word Photo Challenge: Indigo


Jennifer’s new challenge, Indigo, is a bit trickier that the previous one, Persimmon. I cannot find the image I really wanted to upload but I think these will fit the bill. I hope you enjoy viewing tham as much as I enjoyed taking them

Magnificent photography of this beautiful island… TASMANIA


http://exploringtasmania.com.au

You MUST click the link!!!!!! Discover the world of an amazing young man, Jamie Henderson. (I do not know him personally but discovered his photos on the net… wonderful thing this internet!!!!). If, like me, you are a nature lover, you will be in awe with the beauty. No wonder Tasmania has had so many awards as a top holiday destination.

That’s us, Tasmania, that little bit kicked off the bottom of mainland Australia. (yes, we are actually a state of Australia). There’s New Zealand to the left (East) of us ….. that’s where the Kiwis live. Our west coast is “wild an wooly”, lashed by winds and sea that have not seen land since leaving South America. You will even find “the Edge of the World” there…. but more on that another day. Jamie, photographer extraordinaire, lives on the east coast where the wheather is much more “civilised”. Maybe we will see you here one day.

SERENITY…. weekly photo challenge… it’s a Zen thing


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Serenity.” I have so many photos to choose from which would fit into this category, Serenity,  as I often take my photos for that inner peace of capturing special moment of beauty. Water seems to be ever present in such images… it’s a Zen thing.

Autumn photos, Tasmania


A late afternoon drive to Latrobe today to take photos of the colours of Autumn. We are so lucky to live in such a magnificent place. At Bells Parade, Latrobe, Tasmania, Australia.

Aurora Watercolours Perhaps


<
Today with only one student able to attend class we got talking about how sections of our abstracted landscapes with intense colour (watercolours) remind us of auroras. I commented to her that for sometime I have been contemplating this… only problem is that I have no resource photos of my own. Tonight perusing Twitter this jumped out at me! I do not copy photos per se, so maybe I could use "net" ones (and acknowledge source). Otherwise I can just make something up. That is what happens once I get absorbed in the watercolour "happening" anyway. Will keep you informed.
