Blowhole, at Bicheno, on the east coast of Tasmania, Australia. The east coast of Tasmania is very different from the west coat. The west coast is exposed to the ocean swell from thousands of miles of ocean, giving scenes of wild weather and spectacular beauty; the east coast is protected from those rugged conditions, giving a more peaceful beauty. As seas break onto these rocks they spout up out of the blowhole you can see to the left of the large rock in the picture. Even on a relatively quiet day like this the spout of water was quite marked. On a rough day with large swells it would be quite spectacular! September 2016.
