I recently purchased a new camera, a bridge camera, and I’m really happy with the results I’ve been getting so far, especially as it is more advanced than cameras I’ve used before. So here are some random shots I’ve taken.
Black swans are always beautiful to watch.
In a week’s time I am going away on holiday to Cradle Mountain and I’m hoping to get some great photos with my new camera of the wilderness and wildlife there. My work friends have guaranteed I will see plenty of pademelons and wombats! It might even snow!! 🙂
Sorry I haven’t posted anything on here for awhile. I haven’t been motivated to go out and visit places because I’ve been hibernating from the cold weather! The locals tell me it is much colder this winter than last year, so it’s good to know it’s not just me staying home and keeping warm. 🙂
Yesterday, I was very excited to be able to see snow on the mountains from my house! For an Aussie like myself who has only seen snow 3 times in her life, this was exciting stuff!!
The quality of these photos isn’t the best as they were taken through my lounge room windows which are tinted, and although I could see the snow with the naked eye, I had to use the zoom lens on my camera to get it to show up properly in the photos. But it still looks great to me! ❄️❄️❄️❄️
It was a perfect autumn day last Wednesday, and I couldn’t resist taking some photos on my mobile phone on my lunch break wandering around City Park in Launceston, Tasmania capturing the spectacular colours of the leaves.
Opposite the Riverside High School near Launceston is a small park and a lake. I couldn’t see any sign as to what it is called and maps don’t have a name for it either. I visited there one afternoon and found there are quite a number of birds there. It’s a lovely country setting, the lake surrounded by trees, now starting to change colour in late autumn, and farmhouses and green paddocks abound up to the Tamar River with mountains in the distance.
I was treated to a quick diving display from a Eurasian coot!
This park and lake are definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
Hi everyone, I’m back again after a bit of a break. I had been acting in higher duties at work for the last few months and feeling very exhausted on the weekends due to longer working hours and stress, and didn’t really feel up to doing much. I’m back in my usual position now and everything is getting back to normal. I’m glad I kept on with my daily walks as much as I could, as I feel these helped keep me grounded, and I was able to see several beautiful sunrises. I thought I would share some of the early morning views on my walks over recent times.
All photos taken at Tamar Island Wetlands near Launceston, Tasmania, Australia.
On a bright sunny summer’s day recently, I decided to try my luck birdwatching at Tamar Island Wetlands. I wasn’t expecting to see too much in the way of wildlife as it was quite a warm day and early afternoon with a low tide. I thought the majority of the birds would be hiding away in some shade somewhere, but I was quite surprised by what I found.
If you ever find yourself in the Launceston area, it’s worth a trip out to the Tamar Island Wetlands as you can see all kinds of birds anytime of the day and the views are beautiful.
I recently went for an evening walk at Tamar Island Wetlands. It was such beautiful weather and a hot day was cooling down as the sun set, and as I neared the end of my walk, I was treated to some lovely colours in the sky. No two sunsets are the same, so I thought I would share some photos from that evening.
I think you’ll agree it was a wonderful way to end the day. 🙂
Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2019! I hope you all had a happy and safe Christmas and New Year’s.
Having moved to Tasmania mid last year, I decided to travel back to Queensland’s Gold Coast to see family and friends over Christmas. As I was flying there and back during daylight hours, the views from up high were magnificent, so I thought I’d share some photos I took on the flight.
As always, you can visit my actual blog site for bigger and better photos. 🙂
This first photo below was taken on my way to Brisbane. There was a lot of cloud that evening and this was taken around sunset. You can just see the moon. I love the changing depths of the blue sky. You can almost think you’re in space!
The rest of the photos were taken on the flight from Brisbane to Launceston. It would have been nice if the pilot told us what areas we were flying over as apart from recognising the Gold Coast and Tasmania, I don’t know what the other photos are of.
I hope you enjoyed this different perspective of Australia. 🙂
