Images of a Big Island

Cradle Mt.

Only made it up to Cradle Mt. once this time around. True to form, the weather was cold,blustery and RAINING which is the norm rather than the exception in this part of the world.  I sat in the car for a while cursing my luck and eventually a break in the rain came through so hopefully I set off  to a couple of spots that I wanted to check out.

Of course, 100 meters away from the car and a light rain started. I pulled out the camera gear a couple of times in the hope of getting a shot that wouldn’t have water spots on the lens and this was the only useable image.

I call this an environmental portrait of Cradle Mt. with the mountain taking a backseat to it’s surrounding environment of buttongrass plains which cover a large part of the surrounding area.

Anyway, hope you all like it!

    • Thanks Tony, bit of an ugly day weatherwise! Had to make the most of the five rain free minutes I had. Cheers,

    • It would have been a good day there except for the incessant light rain! Just enough to make life difficult.
