A Photo A Week Challenge: The Great Outdoors


The Great Tasmanian Outdoors

Here I’m sharing a few photos taken in different parts of Tasmania over the past ten years or so.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.

    1. The rainbows always look close here. It is one of the first things I noticed when we moved. Perhaps because nowhere in Tasmania is very far from water. I took the moss picture when we were on a cruise on the Gordon River, the place was a small island that was used in convict days. It is a very wet part of the state.

    1. It’s probably not as warm as it looks especially round on the west coast. It was late autumn when we were last there and rained the whole weekend. Still I expect it is warmer than where you are.
