Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Moods of the Mountain #108

Autumn equinox has just passed, the days are rapidly getting shorter, and the sun is drifting further to the right/north of the mountain come sunset time. These spectacular clouds are being lit by a sun that is way off frame for the first photo, but which is making another set of spectacular clouds above the northern […]

Moods of the Mountain #107

As mentioned in the last Moods of the Mountain post, the sun moves northwards as we move into autumn, although we are still enjoying “summer time”. Here are three shots from the beginning of March: the first two showing a spectacular sky on the 2nd, and the final one showing a differently spectacular sky on the […]

Moods of the Mountain #106

Summer sunsets over Mt Wellington are usually pretty special. By winter the sun is setting more northerly, which means that the dramatic effects occur much further to the right of the main peak.

Moods of the Mountain #104

There have been some terrible bushfires raging through some of Tasmania’s wilderness and not quite so remote areas, resulting in a grim smoke haze over Hobart. In the morning the mountain was still visible …

but by late afternoon it had all but disappeared.

Unfortunately quite a few other things are going to have disappeared. [There was some […]

Moods of the Mountain #100

If you have seen all the “Moods of the Mountain” posts prior to this one, you can now proudly claim that you have seen at least 100 different moods of my favourite massif.

In the first shot of the day, clouds partly shroud a snow-covered mountain at 7:45am.

Two hours later and there’s a hint of a rainbow […]

Moods of the Mountain #99

8 am on a cool but sunny winter’s morning, with a Bridgewater Jerry flowing down the river.

Moods of the Mountain #98

Here’s a Monday morning rainbow to start the week, complete with a bizarre patch of cloud right in front of the Organ Pipes.
