The Hazards

Another image from Coles Bay,  this time it is of The Hazards. Even though the light is not the best, I like the contrast between the bright, lichen covered granite in the foreground and the  stormy sky.

The Hazards

Guess I will just have to go back one day and wait for the good light!


Coles Bay

This is an image from Coles Bay which is the gateway to Freycinet National Park. It is a very different place from my last visit around 25yrs ago! Back then, it was a sleepy little place with minimal accomodation options and the nearest Nat. Parks office was an hour up the road at Bicheno. Now it is  a tourist mecca during the summer months and there are people all over the place!

After seeing some beautiful images of The Hazards reflecting the evening sunlight  I was hoping to get some nice images but the weather beat me again as frontal cloud moved in from the west and killed any chance if good light. As they say, if the eggs are broken, you may as well make an omelette, so I got some nice images taking advantage of the pretty cool cloud layer that moved in!

There will be a couple more from this area coming soon!
