'Beauty'

The mountain below is call Sleeping Beauty often referred to as 'Beauty'.  Sleeping Beauty is composed of two mountains Collins Bonnet (1260m) named after the founding Lieutenant Governor of the Colony of Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania) who established Hobart (Capital city of Tasmania) in 1804 and Trestle Mountain (1100m).  Collins Bonnet Forms her lovely head while Trestle Mountain forms the bosom. Her face and nose pointing upward on the right, moving to the bosom and body laying to the left.  I can see this description so hopefully you can too.

We just went for a drive on one of the roads down Huonville way and came across 'Beauty' and a dead end road.
The 2nd photo is of unused huts for the shearers, 3rd photo a horse at the end of the road.

    1. It's a different landscape and I don't know how old the horse was certainly not a young one.

    1. Yes Wisteria usually has a scent sometimes strong varies, a musk to sweet scent. Guess it depends on how much wisteria you have in flower.

    Beauty is the horse, too...not Black Beauty, but Brown Beauty.

    1. All that scenery in our back yard so to speak Colin, ever so lucky here in Tasmania, Australia.
      There was a house near by so expect the horse belonged to people in the house.

  11. The two mountains forming the 'Sleeping Beauty' are clearly seen and enjoyed.
    I'm never indifferent to the sight of a horse.I consider it a noble creature.
