My initial thought was that August was a totally wet, cold and windy month here in Tasmania. However, the photos I’ve taken in the past thirty one days give a different impression.

Between showers, we did get out for walks at Pipeclay Lagoon Conservation Area. I’m not sure what the wood spikes were for, perhaps remains of an old fence line or jetty.

Also a walk on nearby Clifton Beach. Although we had to rush back to the car as the rain fell again.IMG_4264

The mail boxes at this beach always make me smile.

All the rain created spectacular waterfalls where I experimented with long exposure photos.

Despite the weather, August is a colourful month here. The bright yellow wattle is a winter highlight.

There has been snow on Mount Wellington all month but the days are getting longer so it is now still light when I get home. I don’t need a torch to get the post from our street side mail box. Oh the memories of having post pushed through a letter box in the front door. They don’t do that here!

My crochet project at the moment is this spiral square blanket.

I’m linking this post to Su’s Changing Seasons series. Have a look at how other bloggers have spent their month.
