Woolmer's Estate at Longford, Tasmania is a World Heritage listed property, the historic buildings and national rose garden offer a huge range of photographic opportunities as well as gardening and historic delights to admire.
This afternoon is a scorcher... really for tassie... we have thirty plus degree temps all over, but this morning it was cool and damp and a took a couple of photos in the garden before heading to work.
I got myself out of bed early again this morning to get up to Cradle Mountain, aiming to finally see the top of the mountain ( and all of it) in the warm morning light.
Finally I got the shots, but as per usual things are never the way you visualise them... glowing peaks and crystal clear reflections were not to be had.
I would have to be another 30 minutes earlier to get a real sunrise sky and I'm not sure I'm up to that just now, maybe in the winter when the sun rises a little later in the day.

On a beautiful sunny summer day in Tassie a beautiful way to pass the time is in the garden. I'm not much of a gardener at the moment, but my husband is a bit more diligent so instead of doing the gardening I just take my camera out and peek between the leaves.
This summer I have a job working at a holiday park near Cradle Mountain, I promised myself that I would take the chance to photograph the scenery while I'm up there. So this morning I headed up early hoping to get some warm morning light on the mountain.
Unfortunately the weather wasn't helpful, but I took some picture anyway and I'll take some more before the season is finished.
I finally captured an Aurora Australis event last night after a few attempts, I still need to refine my technique, but good old Mt Roland offered a distinct skyline feature and frame for the images I captured.
Next time I head out I want to find a different spot, maybe a bit more remote.
