Weekly Photo - 08/05/2011 "Tasmanian Weekend"

This weekend for mothers day, dad and myself went to Tasmania, without mum! It's not our fault she didn't want to come.

What an amazing week of news it has been. At around 11:35 PM Eastern Time on Monday the 1st of May (1:35 PM on Tuesday the 2nd of May in Melbourne, Australia) the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama announced to the world that Osama bin Laden had been killed in Pakistan. In fact his his 9 Minutes and 18 Second speech began with the words;
"Good evening. Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world, the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden" 

In my hunt for more news I came upon the 3AW Melbourne News Talk website who I had submitted some images too not long before hearing the news of Osama bin Laden, obviously being such a big news day I didn't expect to see my photos run. Below is a screen grab of what I saw.

Anyway as I said this weekend i spent some time in Hobart, Tasmania so this weeks images will come from that trip, The light in Tasmania is brilliant, being so close to the Antarctic the sun never really rises that high in the sky, resulting in very long golden hours at each end of the day, i can't wait to return to Tasmania sometime soon as it has been many years before i had last been. I know I promised some Solomon Island images but they will follow later this week.
