Sunday Selections - Mount Wellington

It's time for Sunday Selections with Kim at frogpondsrock.

The idea is to publish some previously unseen photos that have been sitting around on your computer forever, but I seem to spend so much time on my recent photos that I never have time to look through old ones.

That's the case this week. My photos are from Mount Wellington in Hobart. Our friend's father was in town for the day, so we took him for a drive up the Mountain. I think the last time I was there was with Slabs in 1996.

I was expecting a freezing, windy day where we'd get out of the car, take a couple of photos and get back in the car again before we froze. But the weather was quite pleasant and not windy at all.

Here are the photos.

This rock formation caught my eye.
Here I played around with the Clarity filter in Camera+

Next time I'm going to look at this close-up.

Same view, this time from the Pinnacle lookout window

I love the rocks up here

How to deal with a child who won't have his photo taken.

Now I've been up there, this is another place I'm itching to go back to with my camera and explore more.

    1. It is Linda & there is so much of it to explore. This is just a quick trip to the top. It's stunning.

  2. On top of the world! Stunning scenery.

    Have to say that I love the 'wrestling' shot with the unwilling child who looks like he's quite ticklish.

    1. He is, and he is over photos! I think the photo a day project overwhelmed him a bit and he won't pose at all any more. But this one tells a better story anyway :)

    1. I know you do Kim & I love the photos you posted several months ago :)

  4. It's a beautiful mountain with great views. I'm coming down there one day to see it for myself.

  5. Wow those are some excellent pictures! I wish I could be there to see the formations myself and take pictures. Thanks for sharing!


Hi! I know you hate having to type in the words as much as I do, but I am being furiously spammed, so I've had to reactivate that feature. If you're a real person I'd love to hear from you :-)
