The Essence of Hobart: Mt Wellington

One of the great natural attractions of my home town, Hobart in Tasmania, is
Mount Wellington

I've recently discovered a bit of an attachment to the huge, volcanic backdrop to the port town of Hobart. We have a beautiful view from our place at Kingston and, as many people would experience in their mountain home towns, Mt Wellington seems to have a different mood, clad in different robes and painted by different artists every day.

Here are a couple of different snaps from my house, and from other observation points (including Hobart's Eastern Shore with Camera+ at night, and the cracker from the "organ pipes" on the side of the mountain itself, courtesy of my work colleagues who climbed it the other day).

  1. I'll try & leave this comment again! I really like the photos where the clouds are down low & the top of the mountain is clear. I haven't been up there for ages, must do so soon ... I just need to pick the right day.
