14 km coastal hike

(19 photos, click images to enlarge)
A Saturday walk with the Hobart Ambler’s Club from Seven Mile Beach to Lauderdale for a spot of lunch and return – one of my suggestions. A lovely undulating gravel track with awesome views, a great end of winter day out.

Start, South Eastern end of Seven Mile Beach.
Seven Mile Beach Point, when the snow comes, the swell comes here!

New club member Ada loved the beach and was keen on my camera!

All of the above images were taken with the Laowa 7.5mm f2.4 ultra wide angle lens. When we stopped for lunch at Lauderdale, I swapped over to the versatile 14-150mm F4.0-5.6 II for the following images:

Haphazard Gumtree branches. Dead branches are called “widow-makers”
It was about here when “the club” started to question my suggested short cut …
Fear not, after some coaxing to continuing on we did get back on track

None of us had done this walk previously, there’s so many beautiful places to explore in Tasmania. Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoyed joining us on our little amble as much as we enjoyed the day.

  1. What a beautiful hike and great photos, Tas. I yearn for the days of being in a group, unmasked and sharing nature’s beauty with others. Sigh. Love your black and whites in the mix. 🙂

    1. Thanks Jane, there’s many here who seem to take Tasmania’s lucky situation for granted but I am so grateful to be here. I hope I brought you some joy and hope, hang in there.
      I tend to edit more mono shots now if the colour doesn’t add to the image. Usually as I take each shot, I picture how I will edit it 🙂

      1. That’s true, Tas. Sometimes I see the image in B&W as I am composing it. 🙂
        It’s great that we can lose ourselves in our art to relieve the outside stresses of the world.
