Mt Wellington and the hills around Hobart have all seen a decent amount of snow lately. It is very rare that we actually get snow around the populated parts of the city, and when we do, it is even rarer that it settles. Mt Wellington can get quite a good coating of snow and while it is not any good for skiing, it is a lot of fun to go up and play in.
This was the first time Lucas, our three year old, had seen the snow. He really loved it. This is is first ever snowman, who he was very very sad to have to leave behind when we left…
This is another snowman I found, he was actually pretty tall, and was standing just off the side of the road near the observation deck.
Just a quick post today, of the grass seeds blowing around in the wind on the side of the road.
Love the natural vignette in this shot.
It has been a very dry winter in Tasmania this year. There has been so little rain, the grass has not recovered from summer. Despite the cold wet weather we have managed to get around Hobart the last week or two, most of the paddocks and fields around the place are far from green.
I took this shot this afternoon around the back of Brighton, the sun hitting the dry hill juxtaposed nicely with the dark storm clouds forming overhead .
I love my plastic “toy” cameras, I am slowly building a collection of them, the latest being a Lomography Diana F+ Edelweiss Edition.
What better thing to do at midnight on a Saturday night than to jump in the car with some friends and take photos?
We got to the summit of Mt Wellington, admired the view and then concluded it was far too cold for our 30 something bones, so we were soon back in the car looking for a warmer location. We ended up at the eastern shore end of the Tasman Bridge.
Long hand held exposures, lots of lights and zoom lenses are good fun.
Finally, a shot looking down the Derwent River towards the Hobart CBD and Wrest Point Casino.
