Another day in Paradise

Regular contributor Shevill Mathers captured this delightful scene on the Sorell side of the Pittwater Causeway, once again demonstrating the value of always carrying a camera with you.

We will shortly be introducing a Reader’s Gallery as a showcase for photographs of our island state. You can email them to us by

In the meantime, we just have to share an early morning shot taken by our front page webcam.

Update: A reader pointed us to this photograph in the collection of the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery by J W Beattie [c1880] which shows a similar snow coverage — and a much busier harbour.


The Editor's Notebook is a platform for communicating with Leatherwood Online's readers wordwide, and for sharing items of interest from this delightful corner of the world.

Here's where you will find quirky tidbits about island life, extracts from the lively ongoing conversations about politics and poetry and, hopefully, lots of reader-contributed photographs to share.

We welcome your feedback, so please join in the conversation via the comments.
