Yesterday I found myself looking back through all of the various pictures I’ve taken and found a few from a particular drive through Tasmania. If I’m not mistaken it would’ve been our 2nd/3rd day, and we were heading down the west coast of Tassie, finding somewhere to refuel and then going onwards towards Hobart. As it happens though, when driving around Tasmania, you tend to see constantly changing, breathtaking landscapes. It’s just that sort of place.
It’s difficult to refrain from the constant stop-start type journeys that can easily happen when every other lay-by is a photo taking opportunity. And you’re in a rush to get to the next stop and fit the whole island into your trip. How do you choose which of the lesser known trails to follow and which ones to skip? We chanced it.
The whole island is made up of these kinds of views, even taking photos from the roadside whilst driving around give you some pretty good pictures like this one. Really, that’s the whole point of this post. To share some of the pictures. And to show you that it doesn’t matter if you don’t have clear blue skies all the time; you probably won’t in Tassie. It doesn’t make it any less pretty.
The water seems to be the constant in these 3 pictures. The mountains and the skies constantly change as you make your way further around the island. I can’t even remember which lake this is, there are so many!
This particular one is one of my favourites. Granted, I’ve had to crop half of the image out because it was so blurry from the driving, but that doesn’t change the fact that you get a pretty sunbeam lighting up the mountains in the distance. It’s far better in person, I can tell you that much. Don’t let my poor photography skills make you believe otherwise.
After a while we came to a stop. As always, Matt gets hungry and needs to stuff his face with raspberry soft drink and timtams. Don’t hate our diet until you’ve tried it. Road-side snacks are the best (I’m not talking about barbecued road-kill by the way).
