Shack Life

Shacks are an integral part of Tasmanians way of life. There are pockets of little shack towns dotted all over the country both by the sea and next to inland lakes. The shacks are cosy getaways, useful for the avid fisherman, and all have a huge pile of chopped wood at the door ready for roaring winter fires. I took this series of photos to capture ‘shack life’ on Tassie’s Lake Leake.
