SkyWatch Friday - Cloudy Sky / Hour Glass Sea

This is a post and run today.

About an hour south of Hobart in Tasmania is Bruny Island.  Its about the same size as Singapore and has a population of about 500!  Its my kind of place.

The island is really two islands - North and South Bruny - which are joined by a narrow sandbar.  Penguins and shearwaters nest in the sand dunes.

And in a splendidly photogenic location is a hill that allows you get this view:



You can find more skies at SkyWatch Friday.

Enjoy the pictures.

fabulous; I didn't get to actually go onto Bruny Island, but did sail past it. You must've gotten LOTS of photographs while enjoying the sights of Tassie Stewart

Wow, this place is amazing! Did you go there for a vacation? I've never been to any out of the country trip and I'd like to go there. What's the best time to make a visit?

What an amazing place! Your pictures look great on your blog. Is this a new theme/template? I wonder if I should update mine, but am pretty happy with it as is, and don't look forward to making changes.
