Who Needs Colour?!

A grey and overcast day on Wednesday offered a challenge to find something worth capturing. Luckily Mt Warrenheip often has some nice low lying mists on days like this and I thought this one was suited to black and white. 
I seem to be coming across a lot of bird images lately and out at Gordon I couldn't resist stopping for this view of "birds on a wire".
And whilst I'm posting a couple of black and whites I thought I'd add in this view of Mt Beckworth from last Monday morning.

Mt Buninyong Re-Visit

I'll get back to some more Tasmania images in the next day or so...meanwhile.........Three Saturdays ago I had a fantastic sunrise at Mt Buninyong....here's an image that I felt was worth sharing.....

After the Rain

I had some great conditions on Tuesday morning, firstly at sunrise and then later in the morning around 10.30am.
We had some good rain overnight and though there was still a hint of rain in the air, I made the most of the calm conditions at the Ballarat Railway Station. I have captured aerials here before, however I like the wet feel to these. 
Later in the morning I was running around Lake Wendouree and the stillness of the water tempted me back to catch a few aerials, really helped along by the dark reflections in the calm surface, especially at View Point!

The Finale...sort of!

Well I've finally reached the end of the Tasmania trip....back in Launceston. We had an evening to fill in, so we made a visit to Cataract Gorge. Plenty to see and do here and no doubt would be a great spot for locals to come to on a regular basis. I captured this image of the river that flows into the main area after travelling down the gorge. There is a swing bridge that you can cross high above the water and that's where I captured this from.
So whilst this may be the last day of the trip, don't worry, I still have plenty more images to go back and discover from this fantastic introduction to Tasmania.

Monday Morning Calm

Some lovely mild, calm conditions on Monday morning got the week off to a great start. I thought the Yacht Club at Lake Wendouree would like nice early morning with the lights on across the deck, and the boats add a great touch of varied colours. As you can see it was pretty dark when I first arrived, gradually lightening as we approached the sunrise.

A Walk in the Woods

On the way back to Launceston we made a stop at a small forest walk. To tell you the truth I can't remember exactly where it was and it was only about 15 minutes long. It was a welcome break from the long, windy drive and it afforded me a few lovely images such as this....

Sunday Silhouette Set

Sunday morning was really calm, and though there were no clouds I think these two images work without the clouds. The first one here is on the Spreadeagle Road overpass just out of Bungaree where the Melbourne rail line wends its way past Black Hill. Then a bit further south for this view looking across the Lal Lal Reservoir well before the sunrise has lit any details in the landscape. I think these 2 make a nice pair!
