I’m a planner from way back. I make lists. I organise things. I think ahead. So when I was faced with choosing a random batch of photos to share with Carol Haberle’s fans… I was all at sea! So I’ve made this a collection of photos all tinged with purple hues. I hope that’s not too weird.
Purple Creativity: Carol’s Collection
Purple of any shade between red and blue is my favourite colour. I have a sneaking suspicion purple reminds me of chocolate. According to the Color Wheel Pro, “purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery and magic“.

The word magic was one Carol used a lot in her writing. She often described her Tasmanian subjects as magical, so there’s probably no surprise I was able to compile this awesome collection of images all featuring purple tones.
I miss having Carol in my life. To look at her photos makes me sad and happy all at once. Geez… I’m being all weird again. Sorry! Hopefully these photos convey cyber love and hugs to all Carol’s family and friends.
Purple Mystery: Tasmanian Photos
Where possible, I’ve shared the title from the original photo. Some of the captions don’t reveal the location, but I’m confident the photography is all Tasmanian-based. If you recognise the place, feel free to leave a comment and share your knowledge with other readers.
It’s safe to say Carol Haberle was a great advocate for her local community and the broader north west coast region of Tasmania. She didn’t need to venture too far from her home in Ridgley to capture a great shot.
A novice might think these scenic vistas just magically appeared, but we would all know better. Carol was always willing to go to great lengths to capture the perfect scene. With camera in hand and Kev by her side, she traversed many kilometres for the sake of her art.

While I’m going, I should confess one other thing here too. I’m still learning more, thanks to Carol’s images. When arranging this purple collection, I felt compelled to flick through a few quick Google searches. I now know where to find Cuprona and Myalla, as well as Lake Kara. That’s the thing about Tasmania… there’s so many places off the beaten track to discover. Maybe these images will inspire you too.
