I captured this image in Winter 2012 one sunny Sunday afternoon in Hobart. A sunny Winters day in Hobart is a marvellous thing with the most wonderful, gentle, yellow light. It was taken from historic Constitution Dock.
The basis of old Hobart towns survival and prosperity is neatly summed up in this shot. The mountain provided the colony with water from its rivulets, and the boats provided transport for passengers and goods in or out of Van Diemen’s Land, along the River Derwent. They each were vital ingredients in the viability of the colony and are still important to Hobart’s water and transport infrastructure today.
