Cradle Mountain, Tasmania. AUS

Cradle Mountain in the World Heritage listed Cradle Mt - Lake St Clair National Park is one of the iconic vistas of Tasmania and after visiting there for the first time I can totally see why. Walking around the popular 7 km long Dove Lake circuit track with snow falling all around me was a magical experience and because it was out of season in winter I basically had the whole place to myself. The building on the right is a boat shed that was built in the 1940's.

Managed to get a lucky break in the snow clouds which enabled the Sun to break through and bathe the mountain in a soft golden hour light.

Panorama from the same location

I worked there as a guide for a year back in 2000.  Got to see that view, in all different weather conditions, various times of day and night. Some say that Tasmania is the ass end of the world, well, what a beautiful ass!!  Your photography is amazing!

Thank you so much :D  You were so lucky to work there.  I love it down in Tasmania and fully agree that it certainly is a beautiful ass :D  I'm actually heading back there in two weeks time for a quick holiday.  Can't wait.

BTW, I like that you have taken this picture from slightly to the west of the position used by most photographers, which puts Cradle Mountain in the background rather than a centrepiece, and almost an unimportant part of the scene.  Nice take on a much photographed place!

Thank you so much once again :D This was from my first visit to the mountain so I of course had to take the obligatory boat shed shot.

I've always thought Tasmania was like the interface between Australia and New Zealand. :) Great photo Greg.
