I planned a pleasant three-day weekend in Launceston, Tasmania. Little did I know when I set off that a volcano in Chile would scramble the holiday and most of the following week.
The volcanic ash cloud drifted into Australian air space and shut down all flights to and from Tasmania. The party I was travelling with decided to come home by boat from Devenport. The overnight Bass Straight crossing was smooth, but not a journey I wish to repeat. There is a reason why aeroplanes were invented.
But, the early morning light and occasional mists in and around Launceston were great photographic inspiration. Photos to follow.
