A bit of a road trip

Just realised I hadn't blogged any photos from our trip down south back in September. We took our usual leisurely time on the road, staying at Grassy Head and Ettalong on the way down, then detouring through Gundagai and along the Snowy Mountains Highway to see if we could find any snow (found a little on the shady side of a hill at Selwyn. We then spent a few days with friends in Canberra, attended a ceremony and went to Floriade. On our return we took a detour through Wiseman's Ferry, which was made even more intriguing by Google maps interesting route over a mountain track that left us not knowing how we'd got there! Then some more leisurely Pacific Highway motoring with a lovely stay at Elizabeth Beach in the Great Lakes district. Favourite photos below:

Tassie Trip photos

I'm just back to a very refreshing 8 day family holiday in Tassie. As it was a family holiday (3 birthdays in a week) photography wasn't the priority that it is when Alan and I go travelling, but there was time for some quick studies of what I saw. In order to travel light, I only took our 50mm 1.4 lens (on my lovely 5D Mark III of course.) There were many moments that I longed for my wide angle lens or for Alan's telephoto, but overall it was a good discipline that led me to really look at what was right in front of me and to focus on patterns and textures. First of all, here are a few landscapes, two of sunsets from Dodges Ferry where we stayed. The third is stitched together from 6 photos taken from the Tahune Air Walk near Geeveston.

Our trip to Port Arthur also inspired me to create this bleaker image which is of two of the exercise yards in the Separate Prison (as in solitary confinement) down there. Back in the 1800's there may not even have been any trees tall enough to glimpse over the prison walls. What do you think of this one?
