Tamar River, Launceston

Haven't finished our days trips but had to post these two photos taken last evening of the Tamar River on such a beautiful winters day.
This area is about 5 minutes walk from the city centre of Launceston.
The second photo there are two bridges to cope with the traffic for those people who live on the other side of the river.
There is a lovely park over that fence on the right along with a skate park and this side a playground for children, carpark, toilet block and a nice walk along to Home Point where one can catch the ferry that takes you up the Tamar River for a tour.
Years ago we used to hop in the ski-boat and go ourselves.

The second photo, there are two bridges to take the traffic across to the other side of the river.

    1. Nothing like it - the sun hadn't gone down when I took this - it was over the hill just.

  9. I can see why a number of people have stopped carrying cameras-- you can do so much with the new phones. Of course it's the photographer more than the camera that makes me like what I see.

    1. Well I don't use my camera as much as I used to, it's bulky and gets in the way at times, so much easier to grab the phone and go click. It does depend on what you are taking.
      The photographer is everything, the composition, light and time of day a good eye.
