Snap of the Week – Week 3

Snap Week 3

It’s that time of the week again. Every Sunday we’re sharing our favourite photo from the preceding week. You can find our previous snaps here!

This week was a return back to work. There’s still a lot of repairs and work going into the hotel after the fire-fighter’s departure and preparation for a big fishing competition to be done.

The weather has deteriorated down here in the past week, so there hasn’t been much of a chance for us to get out and use the camera. Except for one small opportunity which reared it’s head in the wee hours of the morning.

We needed some repairs on our car – which is a long winded business when you live 2 hours from the nearest town in Tasmania’s remote South-West. From our isolated location you have to drive for an hour through the wilderness before you come across any sign of civilisation.

Ryan had to drag himself out of bed at the crack of dawn to get to a mechanic in the nearest town. On the winding, wild road he was treated to something of a natural light show as the sun rose over Lake Pedder. The sky changed from pitch black to a rosy pink, with early morning mist rolling in from the mountains.

The sunrise-tinted journey served as a reminder of the benefits of rising early (especially when it comes to getting a good photograph) and also reawakened our desire to be back on the road. At the mercy of spontaneity and never knowing what might be around the next corner.

If you have any photos you’d like to share get in touch in the comments below or via our social media pages – we’d love to hear from you!
