Hobart Dawn

I recently spent a weekend in Hobart. I didn’t take many photographs because, well, it wasn’t that kind of trip. I did get up early one morning and drove to the summit of Mount Wellington, where it was 2.7 degrees, with crazy winds making it feel like -8.2 degrees. The drive back down was much […]
