As I mentioned in my last ‘Tassie Trip’ post, Day 5 was an EPIC day in our trip and so there will be multiple Day 5 posts broken up into locations.
After we had done the climb up to Wineglass Bay lookout and descended, we drove back into Coles Bay to grab some lunch. At lunch we pored over the map we had of Freycinet National Park looking for walks that wouldn’t be too taxing! The climb to Wineglass Bay lookout had wiped my out my legs so I couldn’t do another one like that again but I wanted to see so much more! We decided to head off to see Sleepy Bay (see map above). Though the distance of this walk wasn’t too far, it was a downhill walk down plenty of steps which meant only one thing – lots of steps back up again! I was a little worried, but I needn’t have been. It wasn’t anywhere near as taxing as the previous walk and it was well worth the effort.
Today I’m sharing some of the photo’s I took as we walked down to Sleepy Bay and down at Sleepy Bay. I was transfixed! The colours in the rocks are amazing and the water has such heart stopping shades of blue! Just beautiful!
Next time I’ll be sharing photo’s from the third walk we did at Freycinet National Park up at Cape Tourville (Walk 3 on the map above), and guess what, there will be one more Day 5 post to come after that before we move on to Day 6! I told you Day 5 was EPIC!!
Here’s where to go to see Day 1 – Hobart, Day 2 – Hobart, Day 3 – Richmond, and Day 4 – Port Arthur, Day 5 – Bicheno and Day 5 – Wineglass Bay of our Tassie Trip!
Ciao for now,
Linking up with My Little Drummer Boys for #WordlessWednesday
OMG Tassie is just the most beautiful place! And your photos are STUNNING!!!!
Thank you Lucy! Yes Tassie is so beautiful! I love the place and want to go back ASAP *sigh*!! 😉
The colours are stunning in these photos. Just lovely.
Thanks Kaz – I was blown away by the colours there in the rocks and water – such a magical place! 🙂
I really loved this series of photos.
The second photo has an amazing patch of brighter blue in the water on the “opposite” side of the photo near the rocks. Its great.
The blue in the sky that you captured with photos 6 and 7 which are the close up ones of the rocks really caught my eye and the photo of the rocks where one looks like a cave is terrific.
The absolute standout photo to me is the one with the moss on the rocks. The image is so sharp I touched my screen to feel the texture of the moss. I did that without thinking and then realised that well its a photo so there is no texture to feel. I’d consider blowing that one up as a canvas print to get the texture. That photo is very expressive. I could also feel the coldness of the rock and dampness in the air.
Min you are an artist of quality and feeling.
Well done with these. They really capture your journey of that walk.
Thank you Patrick! As usual I really appreciate your attention to detail and the fact you really look at the photo’s. Lovely as always to hear which ones stand out to you! Many thanks! 🙂
Such a rugged part of the world – it looks almost unspoilt and untouched, especially when I compare it to the photo of the beach in Marseilles on my blog today !
That’s exactly what I loved so much about Tassie, Janet – the fact it is so unspoilt and untouched – in just about every place we went besides the main cities. It’s so refreshing! 🙂
I’m enjoying your adventures. Lovely images you have shared.
I can’t wait till next year.
Thank you for linking up WW-MLDB
Thanks Trish! 🙂
Your photos are so beautiful, they make me feel like I am there xx
Thank you Nicole! That’s such a lovely thing to say because that is exactly what I hope to achieve 🙂 xo
Stunning photographs Min. You’re certainly very talented!
Thanks Deb! 🙂
I love Tassie! Can’t wait to get back there and I’ll be sure to visit Wineglass Bay. Stunning photos, Min!
Sure is a gorgeous place Grace! 🙂
