Touring Tasmania – Seven Mile Beach Sunset

Seven Mile Beach, looking towards where Hobart is in the distance – Click to embiggen

Well I spent three days sleeping after I got back from holiday and then a couple of days catching up on stuff so time to work on some images and post. In my first post I shared some shots of Seven Mile Beach on a sunny morning, these were taken a couple of days later.

Plane took off in the middle of this shot! Click to embiggen

It was quite close to the airport, and I happened to have my camera pointed in this direction already, getting the colour in the clouds when this plane zoomed up right in front of me!  Recompose and click of a few frames, and this was the one I liked most.

Dead tree silhouettes – Click to Embiggen

Everywhere I went in Tasmania I was reminded of the constant danger of fires, given the trees native to Australia are eucalyptus gum trees and full of highly volatile oils.  This row of trees was all black and burnt and dead, testament to a fire at some point.

Unfortunately I had very poor weather for sunsets and sunrises, it was very heavy overcast for most of the time I was there, which was a shame, but you do the best you can with what you have.  So I was pleased I did go out and capture these images.

  1. Stunning photos Stacy. Lovely colours and the plane was a lucky catch. My favourite is the first one, but the last one could show how the landscape can recover from devastation.

      Yes the plane was a nice treat, even tho I was staying so close to the airport I very rarely heard it, I think the prevailing wind blew the sound away a lot of the time.

      Thanks, Tasmania was a great place to take a camera, and constantly surprised me with the variety. I had some great light on occasion too.

        I’ve only visited Tassie very briefly. We’re hoping to go this year or next for a holiday.

        Well hopefully my stories and images will give you some inspiration, and feel free to ask any questions, I enjoyed all of my trip but there were some sections of driving that I might consider avoiding if I had known or if it had been possible 🙂

    Yes the weather is the luck of the draw, nothing you can do about it. I do love the sky (actually the whole shot) of the dead tree silhouettes.

      Yes I was taking photos during one day when it was very dull and cloudy and raining and someone asked me why I was bothering. I replied that those conditions were excellent for BW conversions and one of my shots I took turned out to be a perfect example 🙂

  4. absolutely gorgeous colour!!

    Great golden sunsets, Stacey! 😀 I hear you on the sleeping for three days when you got home, isn’t it funny how our vacations wipe us out. Heehee.

Love to hear your thoughts on my post!
