The moody blues
I’ve just got back from a fantastic weekend exploring the Southwest with over 20 local photographers.
What a stunning part of the world! We weren’t blessed in the weather stakes as sunset and sunrise were rained (and snowed!) out but the moody vibe made for some dramatic scenes on the lake during the day.
A huge thanks to @instameets_tasmania, @tassiebound, @derwentvalleytasmania and @pedderwildernesslodge for a great weekend.

My favourite little walk on Bruny Island is to this big old arch. It's a bit of a side attraction on the Cape Queen Elizabeth track, well worth the detour if you ask me 🙋🏻♂️

Your mum told you ‘you learn something new everyday’. We think every exploration should involve something new. Whether it’s learning a bit of history about the area you’re exploring, talking to some locals to learn more about their life or simply learning more about the environment in which you’re riding. Learn something new always 🤙

Bruny Island you sure are beautiful ... even in some wild & wet weather. I adore the quirky old shacks, filled with character & love, the old coastal town vibe and stunning scenery. Plus the local produce is next level! We definitely ate our way across the island (whilst also enjoying said scenery along the way), and I can highly recommend; the café at Dennes Point for epic coffee and cake, Bruny Island Cheese Co. for the most scrumptious cheese boards and Bruny Island Premium Wines for a lunch that is melt in your mouth delicious.
I just hope our little girl gets to experience the same quaint little towns when she grows up - they have literally already paved paradise and put up a parking lot here at The Neck. Can’t some things just stay simple? Not every house needs to be a mansion, and not every road needs to be for driving 100km an hour. I think the world needs to slow down before it is all lost forever 🖤

A beautiful start to my trip to Tasmania. Was lucky enough to experience my first snowfall 🌨❄️ up in Mount Wellington and chanced upon a rainbow 🌈
ps. It was so freezing cold my hands were so RED (evident from the photos)
Moody road trips. Driving sun up to sun down, hiking in between, stopping as much as possible for scenes like this. Life I wish I could live every day, but also feel like appreciate it so much more the few times that I get to do it.
Sunday Tassie inspo . . . Hells Gates, the mouth of the Macquarie Harbour on the rugged and wild West Coast of Tasmania, is a narrow and notoriously shallow harbour entrance. Macquarie Harbour is regarded as one of Australia’s most dangerous harbours. The prevailing westerly winds, found in the southern hemisphere (known as the ‘roaring forties’), influence the conditions at the passage entrance to the harbour through Macquarie Heads and Entrance Island. This stunning moody capture by @grahamnking is one of the two lighthouses at Hells Gates.
Spring is such a pretty time for a stroll! These blossoming beauties line the street in West Hobart. Do you have a secret spot that comes to life in the springtime? Thanks @wanderingwithcam for sharing this fantastic shot with #HobartandBeyond . 🌸☀️🚶

HOW WE EDIT OUR PHOTOS.
We’ve had some questions recently from you guys - which we LOVE 🥰 because we enjoy chatting with you all - about how we edit our photos and what we use for our stories. So we thought we’d pull it into a caption so you can save it for later!
- Animated stories: We use an app called Mojo. There is a free version which is pretty good to be honest, but you can also pay £20 for an annual pro subscription, which we have.
- Story layout pages: we use another app called Unfold, which again is free but you can purchase packs for a few quid at a time if you want something a bit different.
- Photo editing: we use Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Usually we edit on our laptops but you can get free versions on your phone too which are pretty decent.
- Feed layout: we use Planoly right now to organise our feed, but we’ve also used another app called Unum.
- Story covers and other graphics: we use Canva! It’s a free graphic design website and app - the website is better than the app as it can be a bit fiddly on a phone, but it’s SO good if you have no graphic design skills (like us).
These are great tools to get started with, and to build up your skills as you go.
Do you guys use any of these? Let us know which ones!
