Images of a Big Island

Cradle Mt. Delivers!

If you have been following this blog you probably know that Cradle Mt. and I have a complicated history,photographically speaking! The weather Gods just seem to give me the thumbs down whenever I go there. During my little sojourn around Tasmania in a campervan recently I spent 3 days there with Mort Ellis to make sure I gave myself a fighting chance of getting some good images of the mountain.

This particular morning I got up there early and had the place to myself for a while before the holiday crowds started swarming  and came away with some nice images of which this is one.

Still Waters

Funnily enough, the weather was actually a little too nice with minimal cloud around the mountain during the morning twilight but I managed to get a couple of nice ones which I will post soon. What made this morning pretty special though for me was the absolute stillness of the water which made for some great reflections.

    • Hi Adrian, for two weeks I was a gypsy, wandering at will, loved it! Still didn’t get to half the places I was planning to! Plenty of Campervan rental places down there which are all online. Plenty of places to freecamp as well so no worrries there.
      Next time I go down I intend to spend more time around the Western side of the island.

  2. Great shot. I really like the strong reflections and foreground interest.
