My trip to Hobart, Tasmania

Tasmania is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Australia. I flew to Hobart with my friend, Denise on 12 October and stayed till the 16th.  As we wandered to the beach early on the 13th to photograph the sunrise, we turned around Hampden Street and was greatly surprised to see Mt. Wellington capped with snow, the light turned yellow just a short moment after sunrise. It was so lovely to wake up and see this view:)) Luckily I had my iPhone to capture it.





Then we joined friends at Montimer Bay and photographed the night sky, it was so cold but seeing the millions of stars above me was worth it. It was a mesmerizing moment for me:))














Drove to Bruny Island and went up the lookout to photograph Adventure Bay, after feasting on naked oysters at 'Get Shucked' :))














This was taken at sunset in Tranmere.














What is a visit to Hobart without going up the summit at Mt. Wellington?













Silver Falls at Wellington Park. Taken after a sumptuous lunch at Ferntree Tavern. This is a mere 15-minute walk on a flat track from across the restaurant.






My last day, woke up at sunrise and drove to Princes Park.....Hope to visit Tasmania again to see more of its natural beauty:))

My Memories of Autumn at the Alpine Region, Victoria

My husband and I went on a three-day road trip to the Alpines in the north over the weekend, staying for a couple of nights at Freeburgh in Bright, Victoria. Driving a stretch of at least 800 kilometeres to and from Melbourne, we braved the rain, strong wind, cold and mist while visiting the beautiful towns of Beechworth, Myrtleford, Harrietville, Porepunkah, and Wandiligong while endlessly admiring the serene and lovely views along the way. The downcast weather just could not stop us from immersing ourselves in autumn's beauty, in fact it added to the drama of the season - misty covered mountains, raindrops on the leaves, fresh air.....aaaah, just can't get enough of the alpines.
