King Billy Forest

(The last of Cradle Mountain – 13 photos, click to zoom) –
I’m lost for for words, because I’m lost in this world.
Still gob smacked, I can’t believe I saw this!
Lose yourself, in what is to follow.
They speak for themselves, let them speak to you.
Look hard, listen softly, tread lightly, the earth is listening.
The faeries are watching …

Which way is up?
Yes, you can see through the tree!

Yes, these photos are real. Look at them again. Closely.
Do you believe in fairies? I didn’t, now I’m not so sure.
While walking here, I saw something that I didn’t.
Does that make sense? It didn’t to me, but I saw it.
And now my eyes are moist.
Did I really see this? Yes, I believe!
Look again. Can you believe it?

Comment, for that is where the discussion lies,
It’s up to you! Don’t be shy. Do you believe?

  1. Wow!! This place is so beautiful and magical looking! I would love to walk there with camera in hand. You are so lucky to see this in person! 😎

    1. Thanks John πŸ™‚ The walk was signed as 40 minutes, I think it took us an hour – I took many more photos and my wife was very patient as I hunted compositions. The light was near perfect with the mist and colours intense because of the moisture. Perhaps I could have artificially added some sunrays coming down through the trees in Luminar, but that seems a little like cheating to me. Being there was simply jaw droppingly stunning – every where you looked.

  2. Of course I believe in faeries! These photos are absolutely phenomenal! In photo 7 it appears the tree has a taken a step with its huge foot. I love the moss. What a magickal place! I think the trees and everything else in the forest were quite happy you were there. πŸ™‚

    1. And how could you not! Thanks for the praise, my head is swelling πŸ˜‰ I was certainly happy to be there and did not want to leave. I could easily spend lying on that forest floor, soaking up the sounds and awesomeness of just being there. I feel you would quickly be covered in moss! One of the most beautiful forests I’ve ever been in – and I’ve been in quite a few!!

    1. Thanks for visiting and commenting John, Tassie is so diverse but being immersed in this mist shrouded forest was something special. Sometimes it takes a while to get in the right zone for photography but everything just came together when I took these. A place of magic!
