Tasmania

These few photos were taken in Tasmania a few weeks ago.

On Saturday mornings, the Salamanca Market in Hobart occupies this space and this road is closed to traffic. It is a food and craft market. My husband and I bought some nice woollen stuff to keep warm.  Up ahead, the peak of Mount Wellington is covered with snow – a pretty sight.

On the way to the airport, our friends organised lunch at a vineyard. It was a gorgeous lunch and the view was lovely.

I am not sure what these structures are, but they sure stand out in the landscape.

Have a happy weekend.

ps. I have my first private Japanese language lesson on Monday! It’s going to be a busy weekend revising what I have learnt previously, and getting organised for the class. It’s all very exciting!

Beautiful shots. In the first picture, the sight of mountains in the background is superb.

@ Thanks Sadami, now I learn a new word :).

I have learned Japanese for a few hours. Haha...

Luckily I do not need to know Japanese language in order to enjoy Nature.

Happy weekend.

Evelyn... these are super shots... I especially like that middle sky shot with the posts. The who knows what structures look interesting. I am getting into my head that I want to visit Tasmania... read a novel based there not long ago. Good luck with your Japanese lessons. There's nothing like an immersion course, though... go live in Kyoto for a few months. ;-)

@Francisca: Yes, it would be great to go to Japan for a few months :)... will work on that!!!

Great photos Evelyn. The structures in your last photo look like an operational antenna dish. (Photo was taken at the CDSCC last year)
Cheers.☺
