Cloudspotting in Tasmania
David took this lovely sunset photo from our place last month. Many
people in our area did the same, as the local paper was full of
readers' similar photos the following week. We have seen some amazing cloud formations since we moved to Tasmania. From strange low-lying tufts of cloud clinging to the hillsides to lenticular formations that look like flying saucers, the variety is amazing. Living a fair way up a hill, we're often inside a cloud or looking down on one in the valley. I must get around to reading a book called 'The Cloudspotter's Guide' that was recommended by my manager a few years ago, so I know a bit more about what I'm admiring in the sky.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
