More From Oatlands and Surrounds

On the journey to Oatlands, we passed the poppy fields where they are grown for the medicinal opium industry

Weeds on the roadside in all their fluffy glory.

Wild poppies that pop up by the roadside.

Clover flowers never looked so pretty.

Oatlands is a town with an old flour mill at the centre and is surrounded by sandstone cottages with beautiful gardens. Even the shops are full of interest.

The shop fronts are decorative and offer wonderful glimpses of pattern and shape.

The Callington Mill

It still grinds flour for artisan breads.

Wonderful old lace up boots that feature in a shop window.

Even the shop displays are quaint and inviting.

This chap was tucked into the corner of the restaurant where we had lunch.

Merry Christmas

This week, I made it a project to capture some Christmas spirit in Oatlands, a small village in the centre of Tasmania. 

In the window of the bank.

In a restaurant we had lunch in, I was impressed by their upside down Christmas tree.

 Hope you all enjoy a wonderful Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Cornelian Bay Revisited

A couple of months ago I took Django for a walk along the waterfront at Cornelian Bay and I vowed to come back and photograph the boat sheds. Last Wednesday was the day and the bearded wonder and I took our chances between the rain showers to record what we observed. These are some of my photos of that visit.
