Well my Camera Bag is starting to feel nice and heavy now only a couple more additions and then I'll have a nice all round kit.
The latest edition to the bag is a EF 100mm Macro lens, I haven't had the chance to get out in the field with it yet but the few test shots I've done around home have been quite satisfying.
Christmas cards may be going out of fashion, but they're still fun to make.
My husband and I went for a wander around the Tasmanian Arboretum this morning, at the far end of the arboretum there is a New Zealand Section.
For those of you that I don't know personally, I'm a Kiwi by birth though after nearly 14 years in Australia I became a citizen in 2011, but that doesn't stop me being a Kiwi and once in a while it's nice to indulge that part of me.
NZ (in the arboretum that is) is looking a little unloved at the moment, it got hit pretty badly by the floods we had here in January and the current crop of volunteers don't seem particularly inspired by the trees of Aotearoa, may be one day I'll have some time and energy to spend there.
But still it's nice to explore a little pocket on new Zealand here in the North west of Tassie, Nathan spent more time examining the river than the plants and needed an ice-cream for being such a good helper - carrying my camera bag the whole time.
The Devil's Gate Dam is part of the Mersey-Forth Hydro Power scheme, situated at the lower end of Lake Barrington - it was commissioned in 1969 and even now is quite a sight.
From time to time the Dam overflows, I missed it last year but next time I'm going to get there.
According to the plaque on site at the dam the rock foundations are Chert, the exposed rock faces on the road leading down to the dam are quite intriguing.
My wild and over grown garden is blooming with an array of colourful roses, there is almost a rainbow.
Form, Texture, Tone and a moment stopped in time, the still fluid water washes over what was once molten magma.
The black basalt formations at the mouth of the Don River near Devonport, Tasmania are the main feature of this short series of photos.
I saw this phrase written recently and decided it was appropriate for me right now and when I was down at the breach this morning photographing more rocks and sea I had a little play with the words - then I played a little more when I got home, creating a short stop motion animation.
