    Yeah, I remember cold days in Hobart with snow sitting on top like that. Great shot…

  • Thank you for checking out my photos. You can certainly feel the chill in the air when there’s snow up there, can’t you? cheers, cjc

    Aha, this looks like Hampden Road. You’ve captured some of the reasons why I love my adopted home of Hobart so much here Chris. It’s mixture of natural beauty, built heritage and easy-going pace of life is just right. Easily the most liveable capital city in Australia, by a country mile. Thanks for sharing this.!

  • Thanks Brett. Yes, it is Hampden Road and at the time I was working in a building at the corner of Hampden and Sandy Bay Rd, so this shot was the result of nipping out quickly at morning tea. There certainly is a lot to like about Hobart. cheers cjc

    Wonderful shot, wonderful location…

  • Thanks Greg. I decided that winter that I would get a shot of the mountain with a decent snow covering.

    Absolutely wonderful photo, and you’ve captured the essence of old Hobart … and the way i remember it growing up there. Mt. Wellington started it all for me, first place i saw snow and now i work in the ski industry!

  • Thanks. I like the old houses in Battery Point and I thought the snow covered mountain would make a good back drop. You’ve certainly traveled a long way from Hobart.
