On to Crater Lake …

(Cradle Mountain Part 4 – 11 Photos) –
This place gives the impression it could have been the spot were life started on our planet. Gondwana land in it’s raw and original state.

Boatshed on Crater Lake.
Photo-bombed by a cheeky Currowong!

I don’t normally include photos of me, but this one seemed appropriate, in my happy place after snapping the Currowong, it was a great walk. I’m having some trouble now editing though, I took way too many decent photos!

Normally it’s easy to pick which images to discard or not include – blurred, lighting problems, composition not right etc. This time it’s not so obvious for me as I work through all the images. Aside from some shots where I forgot to wipe the lens, I had an unusually high success rate. I’m trying to be super self-critical and pick the best images out for you and avoid similar shots and repetition. I’ve even edited a few and then decided not include them as there’s just way to many!

Stick to the track, beware the moors!

We continue on to “Wombat Pool”, Lake Lilla and Dove Lake in the next post … Thanks for visiting, I hope your enjoying a walk through the Tasmanian wildnerness.

    1. Thanks John, it is indeed a place of magic. I intend to return when the weather is finer, apparently there’s snow up there this weekend!


    1. Thank you, I ended up editing way more than I intended but they show the changing landscape as we walked. Maybe I should take fewer photos? Naaaaaa 😀

      1. No, don’t take fewer. I try to take as many as possible and then there’s more chance of finding a really good one. You can always delete the ones you don’t like, but you can’t do that if you don’t take them.

      2. That’s pretty much been my strategy for years too, but the Olympus is so good, I no longer find the need to take 5 of the same thing at least, unless it’s something really special!

  1. Thank you for a wonderful photo tour. I love a successful day out with my camera and looks like you did indeed have a successful photo shoot despite the rain.

    1. Thanks for visiting, following and your encouraging comment 🙂 The worst thing about the rain is the actual getting out into it, it’s never as bad as you imagine. The next images to edit are of unique Tassie animals which will be in a few posts time.
