Snow

At home - from the home front it snowed on a few mountains Sunday night/morning on the Island.  The photo below is of Mt. Barrow a low mountain not that far from home, we can see it out the family room window and at the front of the house looking east. It has to be cold for snow to fall on this mountain, many years snow doesn't fall on Mt. Barrow.
It's 1,406 meters above sea level, 22 klms from Launceston. The rock is classed as Jurassic.

It appears that some of my photos have gone from the blog - they might reappear, well hopefully they do as I didn't remove them.



From Friday's post we move forward to some more scenery at Elliot Heads in Queensland.

The lookout below and what's on the Submarine Lookout, the Remembrance of those who fought in the Wars.














There is a man on that rock, fishing.


Back at the caravan park in Bundaberg the bird came to visit.

  1. Snow? So early in the season?
    Elliot Beach looks lovely and I like the simplicity of the memorial.

    1. Oh yes, amazing that snow so very early, just about gone today.
      It's the most simplistic memorial I've ever seen, yet it's very lovely.

    1. We will never know, obviously a local so I expect some fish have been caught there.

    1. Didn't hear about snow maybe falling south of you. It didn't seem that cold here though, we were very surprised when we looked out the window as saw snow.

  5. It's a great location for a war memorial. The mountain with a dusting of snow looks great.

  9. Snow on the mountains looks terrific. The bird is a Common Myna. Stay well!

  11. Esas personas, que un día lucharon, merecen ser recordados y desde ese puesto de observación, todo el mundo que acuda al lugar, recordará su historia.

    Parece, que esa hermosa ave, que ha capturado en su fotografía, se muestra curiosa. Algo ha debido captar su atención.

    Besos

    1. Yes a curious bird it was.
      The people certainly deserve to be remembered and we do that every Anzac Day which is the 25th April each year.
