A thicker bank of fog drifted across the Tamar just prior to taking this photo, the dredge on this day was perhaps 300 feet from where I stood.

The Tamar River is in the north of Tasmania, originating at Launceston at the confluence of the North Esk and South Esk rivers. The upper estuary is subject to significant silting and has been dredged to varying degrees since the mid 1800’s, prior to commencement of the power scheme. Dredging is currently supervised by the Upper Tamar River Improvement Authority, which comprises representatives from local councils, government, the Launceston Port Authority and the community. The principal objective of the Authority is to provide river dredging for flood protection, recreational amenity, commercial activities and general navigation in the upper reaches of the Tamar River. Although the port is no longer used for major shipping activities, there are industries that rely on use of the port facilities and there are also a variety of recreational and amenity uses.

I have uploaded a second image called Google Earth Capture. To this image I have added numbers and descriptions of places I am most likely to take a photo from. If you have Google Earth on your PC/Mac searching for Park Street, Launceston, Tasmania will show you the location of where my Tamar shots are taken. Zooming out to Lat -41.450821, Lon 147.124159 will give you the extent of my wanders along the river banks. To the left I have been as far as the spur of land/water top/left, to the right just near the first tow ships moored on the banks of the Tamar.

For Tamar Fog I was standing on or near the concrete apron looking across to just north of the rowing club.

This is extremely wonderful to see David. I took some time off from enoying my holiday to see what you all have done in the week that I was on Aruba.
Glad I did.
