Wineglass Bay Freycinet National Park the perfect bay.
My photographic Safari back in November 2011 was planned to avoid the tourists which can get in the way of a great photo. Other things however can affect a photographer’s work though. When I drove my car and camper of the ferry in Devonport Tasmania I was greeted with terrible weather including sever rain. I guess it is all a learning experience because that time of year you would not expect such bad weather which did include snow. Not that I am complaining one of my favourite photos that was taken while in Tasmania, was Cradle Mountain in snow the first day of summer. But you can’t take good photos in the rain and cloud does not help at all.
Wineglass bay is in the Freycinet National park which is one of Tasmania’s oldest parks being formed in 1916 and only 125km from Hobart. But don’t expect to drive there in an hour and a half. Tasmania’s roads are very beautiful and slow. A long walk from the car-park brings you to Wineglass Bay where the water is like champaign. This bay is in my opinion the Jewel in the Crown of Freycinet National Park. When I eventually got down to the bay I was greeted by a very cute wallaby who I must have spent 20 minutes playing with.
