Images of a Big Island

Cradle Colour

This image is from earlier in the morning and was a brief show of colour around Cradle Mt. Back over my left shoulder the sky was aflame but I wanted that distinctive shape, so I had to hope that the slowly moving cloud in the mountain’s direction would  ‘light up’!

Morning of the Earth

A little tip for those of you contemplating a trip to Tassie for photography, at the height of summer the sun rises at about 5:30am and sets about 9:00pm. Add to that about an hour of twighlight at each end of the day and your photographic day is pretty long! Especially if you are travelling around as well.

Somewhere in that 24hrs you need to eat, download images, scout around, and do th0se other things that life demands AND get a good night’s sleep! Not to mention the amount of people that visit iconic sights like Cradle Mt & Freycinet Peninsula. Next time I go down it will be in March-April or August- Sept when the days are a bit shorter and Autumn colour or Spring flowers are showing.

Anyway, hope you like it!   Canon 5D Mk II, 24mm TS-E Lens, 2 stop ND Grad Filter

  1. Wonderful colours! It would be great to see something other than grey skies here in England 😦

    • Thanks Jamie, would have loved more cloud around the mountain but knowing my luck it would have been raining!

  4. Done well here mate, I’ve just done the overland track again and walk past it in mist…..again. You got any shots that are wider angle? Reckon that if you could get some more of the sky and less of the reflected silouette then it would work even better. Still a cracker though mate

    • Hi Andrew, I actually cropped the bottom of this image 16:9 format. There wasn’t a lot of cloud and you see it all in the shot. Cheers
