Tasmania | Dove Lake

I was pretty bummed about the weather this day as it was something I had been looking forward to the most on our trip to Tasmania. This is where we were supposed to see Cradle Mountain, but we basically saw cloud instead (not the first time we've managed to do this!) - aside from my disappointment, it was still a view you can't complain about, in the patches where the rain stopped, everything was golden, and we sat and watched the yellows and greys, the choppy Dove Lake, spotted patches of snow and daring hikers on the mountains. We were going to take the 2 hours walk around the lake, but all I can say is, better luck next time. I'm sure one day I will be back again.

Between Lenses | "Mornings"

It couldn't be more perfect timing for this months 'morning' theme to happen. I came back from Tasmania last week and have been so overwhelmed with my lack of spare time since then, let's just say the summer holidays couldn't come around fast enough. I'm dreaming of blogging, reading, being inspired, listening to and discovering music, taking photos, camping and fingers crossed not any homework (for those who don't know, I am studying nursing - blogging to satisfy my creative side, which is always where my passions really lay).

Back to MORNINGS. I slept in the back of a ute whilst I was away and every morning we were up when the light of dawn first appeared, Tasmania experiences some beautiful sunrises and I was lucky enough to see this one when I opened my eyes on a particular morning. We had slept right on the beach, overlooking Oyster Bay and the Hazards (a group of pink granite mountains surrounding the well known Wineglass Bay) - I couldn't be more happy that I got to experience this moment, any of us who appreciate nature and camping dream for something like this.

I have a couple thousand photographs to sort through from my trip, so don't expect them right away, but expect them slowly and eventually!

Keep inspiring and being inspired, have a great week!
