tassie-sky

This week’s entry comes from shastadaisy. The title comes from a poem by Pablo Neruda:

Like love, like a medal,
I take in,
take in
south, north, violins…
the smell of waves.
I gather up,
endlessly,
painlessly,
I breathe.

Welcome back to Flickr Friday. We’re reviving our popular feature with this classic shot by Rick Elkins, a New York-based art director who was on assignment in Tasmania for a commercial shoot.

“We filmed at a number of different locations and this photo was taken in a tool shed of a property where we were using to park our vehicles.

“The location was between Queenstown and Lake Burberry. I was wandering around between takes, trying to stay dry from the frequent rain when I discovered the shed.”

See more of his work here.

Sammy the seal

Sammy the seal has become a star turn at Hobart’s fish punts, and was captured here by Flickr contributor ‘j’adore la nature‘.

She writes: “I am fully into natural history. I love taking photo’s of just about anything that is natural (oh, and boats). I love detail and crave for more and more of it … I want to get closer!”

Painted cup moth

This amazing macro of a tiny Tasmanian creature comes from a Flickr contributor who calls himself ‘Nuytsia@Tas‘ and shows the ‘first instar caterpillar of Doratifera oxleyi (Painted Cup Moth). Approximately 3mm long’.

Nuytsia@Tas says in his Flickr profile that he is “an ex-horticulturalist, working conservationist, trained biotechnologist, manic botanist, lapsed ornithologist, hobbying biologist with an an all round interest in natural history’, and when you explore his online portfolios you’ll see why we’ll be inviting him to contribute one to thisTasmania.

Devonport

Today’s Flickr Friday comes from Melbourne-based ‘woowoowoo‘ who writes “As we waited for the Spirit of Tasmania to leave the Mersey estuary, the sun set in the most fantastic blaze of colour.”

octopus on anchor

Following yesterday’s giant squid find on a Tasmanian beach, how could we go past ‘substitute anchor’ posted by James975 in his Tasmania collection.

The caption reads: An Octopus holding onto our anchor in Coles Bay, East Coast, Tasmania.

sheep crossing road in southern Tasmania

Flickr Friday continues with this very Tasmanian image from Perambulator. The caption reads: “Zen, Tasmania-style. When sheep must cross the road, all others can but sit and contemplate.”
