Dolerite and Lattice in the Cataract Gorge  Launceston Tasmania

Dolerite and Lattice in the Cataract Gorge Launceston Tasmania Some thoughtful person built a home or maybe just an office next to the entrance of the Cataract gorge. It is constructed in the Edwardian style similar to many buildings in Launceston however the sloping cut dry dolerite stonework bares a slight resemblance to a Japanese castle standing at the start of a path as it does. Having observed many Japanese tourists looking at the gorge from Kings Bridge it seems this resemblance is not lost on them!

An old excavator in a scrap yard. I love places like this but work safety regulations are now so stringent in many cases with very good reason that it is difficult to get inside places like this. To take photographs in this scrapyard one needs hi vis kit a hard hat steel toed boots and a certificate 2 in work place safety. Theres just no fun any more.

Meet Terry the turkey…

Terry the gobbler or Tom turkey
Olympus EM1
This is Terry the turkey while he looks like a mean and nasty fella but nothing could be further from the truth he follows his human ‘friends’ around making aggreable grunts he even likes to be stroked every so often. The rest of the time he keeps his hareem of eight females in check by shepherding them in the direction he thinks they should go.
