I didn’t come to see the sunrise; I came to feel it ❤️.

This mornings light above #Hobart on #MountWellington had an intensity I’ve not witnessed for a very long time! Nice to see so many other people up there revelling in the glowing glory too 😊

These aren’t the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere - those are just around the corner! - but they’re still pretty damn impressive, eh? Did you spot the puny humans in their tiny boat? 🛥 Waterfall Bay, Tasman Peninsula.

When Wednesday wanderings weave their way to waterfalls, we’re #winning. Strickland Falls, #Hobart.

There’s something magical about seeing autumn colours bursting through snow, even if it plays havoc with us working out what season we’re in 😂🧡❤️💛❄️☃️🌨

Yesterday’s autumn/winter mashup was all about the details; golden jewels upon a gown of heavenly white 🧡❄️. These five little leaves caught my eye as they broke free and positively glowed against the fresh snow.

Natures traffic lights, #tassiestyle! .
With a heavy fall of snow across #Tasmania’s alpine areas this weekend, all eyes (and most likely photographers’ lenses) were aimed at our colourful little fagus beauties. The Nothofagus Gunnii is Australia’s only winter deciduous tree and is endemic to Tassie’s highlands (it is a beech which only grows above 900m). With @jayedevil and @lifecatchme I headed out to Mt Field early this morning where we were treated to scenes of bedazzling white forests bejewelled with gems of green, gold, orange and red; we wandered, meandered, paused and stopped as each one directed us. A most wonderful day out ❤️🧡💛💚

A very wise lady once said, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else”. I love RuPaul’s DragRace; the queens are super fabulous, and it is beautiful seeing folks living their truest selves. The fact they’re also amazing performers is just a bonus.
Are there any fellow fans here? 💃🏼👸🏼 .

Meanwhile, this is me on a beach. Hardly fabulous 😂

Every hour is golden hour when you’re in south west Tassie 💛 This is a little abstract compared to my usual posts, but I wanted to show you just how unusual the water is in Bathurst Harbour. The rolling plains of buttongrass leech tannins into the groundwater, resulting in the waterways taking on a tea coloured hue; add some sunlight in the shallows on a beach and you’ve got yourself ripples of golden goodness lapping at the shore 💛 #tassiestyle

Welcome to adventure, bae ❤️.

Some people like their beaches to be crowded with people; probably best those folks never visit Tassie 😂👍🏻.

I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable and safe Easter ❤️🐇🌈. #tassiestyle #discovertasmania #tasmania

Is this the birth of Bruny Islands next ‘insta trophy shot’ location? Only time will tell, I suppose! The brand new @pennicottjourneys booking centre and restaurant is now open at Adventure Bay (official opening coming soon) and it is magnificent; the new building is wrapped inside and out in a beautiful wooden skin which will silver over time. This spiral staircase, complete with whale-bone inspired handcrafted canoe hanging in the void, marks the beginning of your adventuresome day with the multiple award-winning Tassie company 👌🏻 #pennicottjourneys

Guess how many people I had to edit out of this shot to make it look ‘natural’ and ‘wild’?

None. Nada. Zilch. .

Which is just as well, as I have no idea how to use photoshop 🤷🏼‍♂️😂💚. Have a fabulous weekend everyone 🌈.

I love Tassie’s seasons; summer, autumn, winter, spring, summautumn, springter, wintmer and autspring. And that was just today. .
My visit to the mountain this morning was horrendously windy with tiny ice razors being driven through my eyeballs, and my golly gosh it was bloody awesome! Always a thrill to spend time up there, no matter the season(s). .
