The Famous Bay of Fires Tasmania

Bay of Fires

I took this shot at the Bay of Fires found on the east coast of Tasmania. Stretching over 50 kilometres from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north. I recommend visiting if in Tasmania the Bay of Fires is a beautiful spot. Famous for its crystal-clear waters, white sandy beaches and orange lichen-covered granite boulders. Named by Lonely Planet as one the hottest travel destination in the world, and is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places in Australia. Its name refers to the Aboriginal fires spotted by Captain Tobias Furneaux when he sailed past in 1773, but it could also apply to the brilliant orange lichen that grows on the granite boulders lining the bay. Such a great spot for photography.  I’ll be posting some more shots of the area later.
