Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

Highfield House, Stanley, Tasmania. This wing of the house contains the kitchen on the ground level and the staff quarters upstairs.  The house was built in the 1830’s when Australia was still very young.

Victoria/South Australia: Blue Lake, Mt Gambier

The Blue Lake sits in an extinct volcano. It is actually one of four crater lakes in Mt Gambier. One of the others is just on the other side of the road. For most of the year it is a regular deep blue colour but in November, and almost overnight, the colour changes to a deep, intense blue. This normally lasts until February and by March it has returned to its normal colour.

All three of the above photos, when placed side-by-side, give a panoramic view of the lake.

The Pumping Station below is still used to provide fresh drinking water for Mt Gambier.

Victoria/South Australia: Larry the Lobster

Kangaroo Island holiday 2005193

Larry the Lobster sits outside The Big Lobster cafe in the small South Australian town of Kingston SE. He is nicknamed Larry the Lobster and was built to attract people and encourage them to stop and try some of the local food and wine. It certainly worked for us. After driving for hours without a break it was just what we needed.

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge: 2015 Week #7- Old-fashioned punt crossing

Kangaroo Island holiday 2005187

Wellington, South Australia is the original punt crossing on the Murray River. It is run by the South Australian government. Every day it ferries cars, trucks and caravans from one side of the river to the other. It’s a quaint step back in time but is much cheaper than building a bridge apparently.
