Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Fields and Landscapes

If I take any photos this week I think it will be of wooden boats filled with animals, it has rained every day this week. Instead here are some photos from my archives. Three from Tasmania and one taken while we were visiting friends in Canberra. The snowy picture was taken during one of the rare big snows in Geeveston. There is often snow on the hills behind the town but not usually this much. The Tahune Airwalk is about 30kms from Geeveston and the cantilever viewing platform was opened just before we arrived in Tasmania in 2002. The river is the Picton. Tooms Lake is in the midlands, Naomi and I stopped to have a look at it one day driving back to Oatlands from Launceston. it is popular for fishing and camping although there was not much water when we saw it as there was a drought over most of the midlands.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our 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. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
