Back home again

After two weeks touring around Tasmania I'm back home again.

What an amazing island! What contrasts! There's the desolation surrounding Queenstown ...

... where the hills have been stripped bare by decades of mining so that it looks as if you're on the surface of the Moon (except a tarmac road winds through it).

Whilst, at the other extreme, Wineglass Bay is breathtakingly beautiful...


... and is classed as one of the ten great beaches of the world.

This photograph, by the way, required a 5-hour hike, up and down a very steep mountain - so steep that at one point I wondered if I should have taken a rope for safety. Luckily the weather cooperated and I got perfect views from the top.

Aaaah, the Tasmanian weather. The Tasmanians say that you can get all four seasons in a day on their island.

And they ain't kidding. In my two week visit I had everything from a tropical 35 degrees centigrade, to a wintry downpour ...


I took over 1'700 photographs. Now to select the usable ones, process them, keyword them and put them up for sale.

A long slog. I wish I was back touring that hugely varied land.

I just wanted to say welcome back. I've missed your blog. I hope we will be seeing some more of your "holiday snaps", perhaps the ones that earn you some cash!

Thanks Dave. I'll certainly put up more 'snaps' when I've edited them. The three I showed were selected quickly
