A serendipitous opportunity late in the day

Recommended Posts

When I was returning home at sunset in northern Tasmania, we had to pull over and get some more petrol. The bowsers were set up facing the scenes which are pictured. While my brother in-law worked out the problems of 'pay before you pump' (the station was closed for the night), I looked at the scene and thought this might work.

But I had failed to bring a tripod, so it was all shot by resting my camera on a bollard pole used to protect the bowsers from wayward vehicles entering the petrol station and hitting them. Next time , . . I will have the tripod. If you ever get the opportunity, spend a few weeks in Tasmania for the photographic opportunities it provides. 

BTW, the picture of the white headed plants are opium poppies. Tasmanian farmers grow about half of the world's opioids used by the pharmaceutical industry for morphine and codeine under government licence and supervision.
