You've gotta have some sun to get sunrise pics.

Weather we've been having over here lately "Rainfall" would have been an easier brief to fill.

Hope we have some sun in August, cos we sure didn't get any in June or July.

Exactly!! "Rainfall" would have been far too easy.

It's been pretty good here down south for the past couple of days and I hope it spreads up to you guys. Hope you enjoy the challenge.

Funnily enough we've just had a couple of bright days as well, now if I could only convince myself to get up early then maybe I'd get a shot or two.

Ahh, yes -- that's always been the hard part of "sunRISE" for me! You have to get up early enough to get to your spot before sunrise, and that makes it pretty early during the summer months. I need to find a good spot really close to home

According to both ScubaMargie and MysticalOne, this is not the season for people in Tasmania to get up and photograph the sunrise either. Both of their images increase my desire to visit Tasmania -- but I'll try to avoid the wet/cold season.

Once visited Hobart in the early 1970s, I seem to remember having had some success in the Casino there. Other than that I don't recall too much about Tasmania, other than it's mostly very sparsely populated, and the people you do meet all sound like Aussies .

I suppose it may have changed a bit since then.

I must apologise to our southern-hemisphere competitors. I'm afraid I didn't really take their winter into account when I chose the theme. Bad me.

But then again, "It's no fun if it's too easy", as they say. Probably

I hope it hasn't changed too much -- "sparsely populated" is an attraction, the landscape images I've seen are gorgeous, and since Tasmania is an Australian state, I'm sure the accents are still lovely also. Add a visit to the casinos to all that, and it sounds like a fantastic place to visit.

Oh, I didn't get up before sunrise today either -- maybe over the weekend...

The inland and (especially) west coast are still very sparsely populated, which tends to ensure the survival of rugged and wild landscapes, beautiful lakes, big hills (we call them mountains), and simply spectacular scenery all around.

Winter is nice, with plenty of snow across the high country, but very chilly.

Stay out of the main cities, bring a camera, and you will never want to leave, nor have enough time to take all the different kinds of photo's you would like to... even after 20 years.
