I have finally gone through all the photographs taken on my road trip around Tasmania, with my gorgeous friend Katrina. Tasmania is a very beautiful place and of-course I took way too many photos. I decide that it will be better to show them in sections and this is where it all started. Cataract Gorge was the first place we went to after landing in Launceston and renting a car. It is just minutes away from the city centre but you feel like you're in a completely different planet. Straight away you're surrounded by the wilderness. What amazed me the most were the peacocks that freely walk around the Gorge. Some people might not find them as fascinating, but I absolutely love them. They're probably my favourite birds and straight away I just fell in love with that place. We probably didn't pick the best day to go there, as it rained for most of it. But I was pretty happy with my photographs, they have that cold winter feeling, snow was probably the only thing missing.

 After having a picnic, surrounded by the birds we decided to go for a walk around the Gorge. We were told it would only take us about an hour, but we stayed there for most of the day and that wasn't enough for us.

Here I am, wearing my Russian hat and looking very cold but very happy.

 I could've have easily spent days there photographing the rocks. Aren't they amazing?

 Katrina photographing the river. It's so nice to travel with people who have similar interests. It must be hard for people who aren't interested in photography to travel with photo-addicts like myself. In Tasmania I felt like I only just bought my first camera. I wanted to photograph everything, it really inspired me.

When we finally got to the Alexandra Bridge, we took even more photographs. Poor Katrina was freezing, we didn't think Australia got this cold. It felt like a different country. Cold, but beautiful.
