Adventure Bay, Bruny Island Tasmania

We drove to Bruny Island on a cold, windy day last Thursday,  a place with lush vegetation, pristine beaches, scenic mountain/farm views, and awesome seafood:))
The island can be reached by a half-an-hour drive from Hobart to Kettering then a fifteen-minute ferry trip. 
The highlight of our visit here was eating naked oysters with lemon at a place called Get Shucked, a short drive from the ferry terminal on the island.

Back to work... editing my photos of Hobart just when I find a bit of time to do so, and will be sharing a couple more later:))

Hope you all had a wonderful start to the week:))

--This was taken at Coburg Lake Park. On an afternoon walk while planning for my travels this year and the next, and to gain inspiration for a vision for where my photography is heading for in the distant future:)) I would love to expand from portraiture to perhaps landscapes and photojournalism to see what I am really truly interested in....There is so much to learn in life, but I try to take things one day at a time and to enjoy everything that life offers:))

May you all have a lovely week ahead....

-This was taken at sunset at South Werribee beach, another place where I find solace, just being there gives me a sense of calmness and tranquillity, indescribable.

Silver Falls, Wellington Park

This was taken after climbing rocks and standing on the summit of Mt Wellington to get a view of Hobart City yesterday... after three hours on the mountain we drove down to have lunch of crumbed scallops and soy latte at the Fern Tree Tavern just across where the park was. This waterfall was an easy 15-minute walk on a flat track from the entrance. I was with Teresa, a Tassie and an awesome photographer I met on Instagram. She was kind enough to take me to Montimer Bay and introduced me to a couple of other photographers to hunt for the illusive aurora, the night before))

My memories of autumn at the Alpines, Victoria, Australia

Visited the towns of Harrietville, Beechworth, Myrtleford, Porepunkah, Wandiligong on a three-day road trip, covering more than 800 kilometres to and from Melbourne, braved the cold, strong winds, mist and rain along the way. With my dear husband, I stayed at Freeburgh for a couple of nights listening to the sound of kookaburras perched on the verandah, waking up to the view of beautiful autumn colours and mist enveloping the mountains....

So many times I wonder about so many things...

My fifth and final contribution to the #naturephotochallenge  . Took this shot at Fitzroy Gardens yesterday afternoon, taking a stroll around there is probably one of my favourite pastimes in the city, there's something refreshing in the air around the place and I realised I haven't been there for a few months... it rained earlier which added to the freshness, and I noticed the leaves have started to change colour...ah, my most favourite season has arrived:)) Happy Easter, dear ones!!
Thanks once again, dear +Kim Sinclair  for the invite!!

My life changed immensely the moment I learnt to see beauty and document stories through the lens. I have this lifelong aspiration to become a humanitarian photographer, so I can use my passion in photography to raise awareness of some of the world's social issues. Hopefully it will help to motivate people, in some ways, to improve the quality of life of those who suffer from disadvantaged circumstances or treated unfairly, anywhere in the world. I love to learn new ways of doing things... Life unveils its deepest meaning, every step of the way, when you acquire a humble posture of learning...
