Weekly Photo Challenge – Silhouette #1

Port Arthur, on the Tasman Peninsula in eastern Tasmania, was once the harshest penal settlement in the young colony of Australia. The penitentiary, originally built as a flour mill and granary in 1843, was converted in 1857 to dormitory accomodation to house convicts away from the rest of the settlement. While much of the building now lies in ruins these chimney stacks stand tall.

  1. Thank you Leanne, I will take that as a great compliment coming from you, as your photos are always lovely. You would really enjoy Tasmania. The photo opportunities are endless. I’m planning to write several posts about places we saw there. I’ve been trying to think about taking photos that are a little different instead of just snapping away.
