Images of a Big Island

Wild Light II

If you have had a look through my blog you may have noticed that I have a fondness for mountains with clouds around them. When I notice stormy clouds settling around high ground I start looking for some sort of interesting foreground and hopefully some sunlight filtering through the advancing (or retreating) clouds, not always as easy as it sounds!

While driving around the Western Creek area in Tasmania I noticed clouds advancing across the Great Western Tiers, so after heading down a couple of side roads with no success I finally found this scene. It was just a matter of waiting for sunlight to hopefully illuminate the foreground to contrast with the threatening cloud over the mountains.

  2. I saw a programme the other night about an endurance event in Tasmania. It’s the first time I’ve really seen much of the place – and what an incredibly diverse and beautiful place it is!

    • It certainly is Noeline, sort of a cross between England & New Zealand I guess is the best way to put it. Cheers!
