Something mysterious maybe??

Sunday Stills Photo Challenge

I had trouble with the prompt of mysterious, as usually I am anything but mysterious, in fact I’m more of an open book and had some difficulty in thinking of something to post. It wasn’t until tonight in our weekly family photo chat, when my brother-in-law commented on my photo saying it looked mysterious that I finally had something to offer! I thanked him profusely for the idea and here we are!

I used the above photo of the Gordon River, taken while on an eco tour, for our weekly family photo challenge with the prompt of ‘reflection’, I think it also fits in perfectly for #SundayStills this week. Isn’t it funny how inspiration happens?

The setting does look mysterious and I particularly like the photo with the misty clouds reflected in the still waters of the Gordon River. What do you think?

This is another photo taken on the boat but it doesn’t have quite the same sense of mystery about it, maybe because it has people in it??

Travels in Tasmania

We visited this area a few years ago and I wrote a series of posts documenting our travels around Tasmania – and I wrote a post with my Top 10 Tips away for Two Weeks of travelling in Tasmania of our two weeks away.

My friend Sue from Women Living Well After 50 has recently spent three weeks in Tasmania and will be blogging about her time away, well worth keeping an eye out for her posts!

Terri, from Second Wind Leisure, hosts Sunday Stills photo challenge, with the prompt this week being mysterious. You can read Terri’s post here The #Mysterious is a Beautiful Thing and she very kindly shares links to everyone who posts for #SundayStills. Feel free to join in, it’s a fun challenge open to everyone with a different prompt each week!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my offering for this week’s Sunday Stills. What would you share for the prompt of mysterious? It really had me thinking!

Have a great week 🙂

    1. Yes that’s what I thought too Leanne, an isolated area and a bit eerie looking! I’m glad you think it’s an interesting choice as I really was stuck for a while and nearly gave up 🙂


  1. Definitely the flavor of mystery here, Debbie! I think low-lying fog always makes for mysterious, moody photography. Once our leaves fall, we will get the low-lying fog filtering through the pine forests. I think I have a couple of pics similar to the one you shared today. Your first one is so gorgeous with all the layers and reflection.

    1. Yes Terri, misty/foggy/cloudy shots do tend to have an air of mystery to them. I like the first photo for the atmospheric touch. Mystery was a good prompt but had me stumped for a while, thanks 🙂

  2. Hi Deb, isn’t it satisfying when you have not idea of what to write and a chance conversation brings inspiration. I love your photo of the Gordon River and you certainly have captured the misty mystery of the area. As you know the Gordon River is stunning wilderness and after my recent visit I can certainly understand why so many protested to save the area from logging. Thank you for the shout out, I’m looking forward to writing my series on Tassie. x

    1. It was such a relief Sue, as I really was stumped. When we were down there I truly understood the reasons why the protestors did what they did and I am happy it worked out the way it did.


Let's keep the conversation going...
