as i mentioned in a previous post, the winners of the annual Greater Esk Tourism Photographic Competition were announced at a special function on 14 November 2012

the photo which attracted the most votes from the public is entitled autumn with a touch of winter, by peter troode

it’s not difficult to see why this lovely photograph topped the list

owen hughes, who selected a winner for the main prize (fingal artist maggie fletcher), is shown below (right) with peter and the photo which won him the viewer’s choice award

there were a large number of entries this year, so it would not have been an easy task to either judge or vote which was the best photograph

stay tuned to find out what the theme will be for 2013!

unique flora

just to show you what ‘the bush’ is like around st marys – here’s a photo of some wildflowers in the bush section of our block of land near mt elephant –

there are also a lot of banksia trees growing there, which look quite strange to anyone used to the vegetation in the northern hemisphere (myself included) –

next time i go out there i’ll take some more photos, as spring is just around the corner

who knows what will be growing there next …

st marys rivulet

this section of st marys rivulet runs parallel to the main street;  it flows behind the public library and various other buildings in a loop between two bridges

this photo shows the river in idyllic and peaceful mood, but after heavy rains it can become a raging torrent

spoil yourself

St. Marys, a country town in the island state of Tasmania, is a great place to visit!

Why not come and stay for a few days?  You can see beautiful natural attractions, select accommodation to suit your taste and budget, and enjoy some meals out as well (no washing up).
