Bruny Island - Tasmania - Stunning

I had a chance to go to Bruny Island a few weeks back. Having been to Tasmania more times than I can remember this was a great chance to see a part of the state I had never been to.

Bruny Island is only a short distance from Hobart but because it involves a ferry, boat or plane it (like many island communities) is less popular than the main island, which is also its appeal.

My trip was a quick (overnight) work related one, so it made sense to fly in from Hobart airport on an island hopper.

Bruny is separated into 2 by a narrow "neck" seen above. The airstrip is gravel but these planes are made for them.

Included in this trip was a boat ride around the southern part of the island. It's a rugged coastline and can be very rough. But we had perfect conditions including for dolphins and seals.

What struck me was the variety of scenery. From calm lagoons to crashing waves, sandy beaches to rocky cliffs, farmland to forests - Bruny has a lot to offer and well worth a visit.

Hand luggage needed to include the 1Dx but with weight limitation I only took the 24-70L f2.8 and 70-200L f2.8 and no tripod.

My best 4 shots are here.

This one is is a taster.
