Why Snapshot?

To my mind there is a vast difference between a photograph and a snapshot.
A photograph is made, the photographer has a vision for the image in mind and sets about creating it. Waiting for the right light or weather conditions and often visiting the scene several times to get it just right.
A snapshot on the other hand is taken as the opportunity arises, often with minimal thought. It is what we do on holiday, when out with family, it aids us in remembering those moments long past.
Having said that, many snapshots are perfect, just like the postcard, whilst some photographs, despite the time and effort, look like a hurried snapshot.
I take mainly snapshots, but occasionally, I get a beautiful photograph.

More of my images can be seen on smugmug and on flickr

Ross, Tasmania

Today I went for a drive to Ross, in Tasmania's northern midlands. It was cold but fine although some ominous looking clouds did roll in from time to time. Below are some of the images taken although there are none of its famous Convict built bridge as I will be doing a series on Tasmania bridges at a later date.
