Tasmania, Binalong Bay

 

After spending the night and having breakfast at our beautiful B&B at St Mary’s it was time now to move on again.  Today we were off to explore ‘The Bay of Fires’ and after a morning tea stop at a beautiful bakery at St Helens, our first stop was Binalong Bay.

I always thought that the name ‘The Bay of Fires’ came from the bright red, orange and yellow colours in the rocks.  I was wrong!  The Bay of Fires name was given to the area in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux in Adventure, who saw the fires of Aboriginal people on the beaches.

Binalong Bay is situated at the southern end of the Bay of Fires.  The town was originally a fishing hamlet but is better known now as a village with a large proportion of holiday dwellings.  What a beautiful spot!  Once again, I was spellbound by the colours in the rocks!  Even the cloudy day didn’t dull the impact, but I won’t waffle on, I’ll let the photo’s tell the story!  Once again, for the photography enthusiasts I’ve included my camera settings.

    These photos brought back memories for me of my time at the Bay of Islands. The fourth photo were the reflection of the trees is in the water is fantastic. You got the light perfectly. The fifth photo were you focus in on the rocks and their rusty colour is brilliant the photo wants me to reach in and feel the texture of the rocks. The second last photo that shows the rocks pointing to the sea and the land beyond makes me feel like a convict wistfully contemplating an escape but realising the ultimate futility of such an endeavour.

      Thanks Patrick! The photo with the reflection of the trees was one that frustrated me because I wanted to get the trees and their reflections but my lens was not wide enough – so I did the next best thing I hoped. LOL – the description of how the 2nd last photo made you feel made me laugh. I went and looked at it again and yes I can totally see that! 🙂
