Photos taken in Hobart, capital of Tasmania. Beautiful natural setting, historic buildings, working waterfront.

EXIF details as noted. Photos 1 and 2 taken with a700, the rest with a900. ISO 200 for all.
Comments and feedback welcome as always.

3. The Lady Nelson replica. The original Lady Nelson was a brig, built in 1798 as a cutter for mercantile service. She was purchased by the Royal Navy in 1799 and she spent her career exploring the coast of Australia in the early years of the 19th century. She was the first known vessel to sail eastward through Bass Strait, the first to sail along the South coast of Victoria, as well as the first to enter Port Phillip. The Lady Nelson was also involved in the founding of Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne and Brisbane. She and all her crew were lost to Malay pirates in 1825.

Top collection!

I once had lunch in Salamanca Place after leaving Auckland at 0630 and traveling via Christchurch. We roared into town in limos (I was with a media group) via the Casino then to the restaurant area, had a beautiful lunch of local produce, then sped back to the airport, screeching to a halt on the tarmac at the foot of the air-stairs. It was a very fast trip back home! But we felt no pain as it was champers all the way.

Seems like a lovely place! Thanks for sharing!

The photos are beautiful! All of them! I love the rainbow in #2 and I like your use of the fisheye lens.
