Snow + sunset = awesome!
Views like this get me all warm and fuzzy inside (which is good, ‘cos the air is so friggin chilly!).
The sweeping vista looking down on @tasmania’s capital city, #Hobart, draws visitors to the top of #mtwellington at all times of the day and night (there’s even wallabies that hop around the summit after dark #justsaying).

Isn’t that just the most enchantingly coloured water?
Bruny Island, a ten minute seaplane flight from #Hobart’s docks, is spectacular from the air with @tasairadventures.
And on the ground, the beaches are yours to explore in peace, complete with a tasty picnic if you like (I do like, and highly recommend it!).

Oh @tasmania, you sure know how to put on a light show!
Sunset from on top of a mountain, snow drifts snuggled against boulders and light so gorgeous I’d call ‘fake’ if I weren’t here experiencing it first hand, through my own eyes.
Just a fleeting moment in time (in below freezing air haha!) but with it the ability to lift your spirits, put a smile on your dial and remind us that in this big scary world, there is beauty there waiting for us, if we just stop and see it.
Did I mention sunsets are free?
And this view…I stood on the road that winds its way up Mt Wellington, just 25 minutes drive from downtown #Hobart, and snapped it on my phone (using ProHDR).
An easily accessible location, shot with a device most of us already carry around. Perfect for lazy car park photographers like me haha!

The pier on Vivonne Bay, #kangarooisland, got us all excited when we saw there was a rail line AND a trolley on it… Alas, myself and @itsworthashot were defeated by the chain that holds it in place! Haha!
The beautiful waters and textures of the pier itself were what we came to see though. The dark blue on the pier is a fisherman who came to see what I was doing (I had my phone on a @jobyinc #gorillapod wrapped on the side of a power pole haha).

Despite being winter, this gorgeously hued tidal pool on #kangarooisland was ever so enchantingly enticing!
The water was beautifully clear too, and we watched as bright yellow crabs chased their dinner, and cute striped fishies darted about in the shallows.
This is at Point Ellen, in Vivonne Bay on the South side of the island. Definitely a place I’d love to return to and explore these awesomely textured and weathered rocks in more detail!

Just before I flew home to Tassie from Adelaide yesterday, we stopped by the bayside suburb of Glenelg for some yummy lunch.
Of course, as soon as I saw this pier, my inner-instagrammer was itching to get out and ‘gram the heck out of it! Haha!
The advantage of long, orang-utan-esque arms helped me get this shot.

Can I get an ‘awwww’ for this baby Aussie sea lion?!
Waddling up the crisp white sand of Seal Bay, kangaroo Island, these guys return from days of feeding at sea tired and in need of rest.
But some, like this little fella, just wants his mum for a cuddle to get warm. He found her eventually - otherwise, I’d have felt obliged to go give give him a big hug! So cute!

I missed the spectacular Tassie skies last week… So this was a beautiful ‘welcome home’ to arrive to this morning 😊
Hope you have a wonderful week guys! (at Hobart Waterfront)
The Remarkable Rocks on #kangarooisland are, as discovered, indeed remarkable.
A series of weathered granite behemoth boulders, balanced atop a giant dome of the same rock. Some have these awesome caves and cracks in them - big enough to climb inside!
Located within the stunning Flinders Chase national park, it’s a popular spot for sunset and sunrise (that orange lichen covering them appears to radiate beautifully in the low-angled light).
I’m almost home to Tassie. Sunrise with @itsworthashot today on the island seems so long ago!
