(6 photos, Part 3) – At the risk of boring you with more big boulders and thinking I have rocks in my head, here’s the final refrain from what must be the biggest organ pipes in the world!
The temptation was to edit more of these images in mono, but … I just couldn’t bring myself over to losing all the beautiful colour. The two shots below are pretty close to what I had envisioned in my mind.
As a boy I always thought Mt Wellington was an extinct volcano. It is instead a sill, formed during the Permian, Triassic and Jurassic ages.
“The upper reaches of the mountain were formed more violently, as a Sill with a tabular mass of igneous rock that has been intruded laterally between layers of older rock pushing upwards by upsurges of molten rock as the Australian continental shelf tore away from Antarctica, and separated from Gondwana over 40 million years ago.” – Source Wikipedia.
The mist rolled in again and refused to budge. Time to get my head out of the clouds and head back to the car …
This is the steep “track” back down to the car. Shall we play “lets spot the track marker” again?
No, I can’t find one either 😉
Thanks for joining me on another Tasmanian adventure! After returning to the car, I drove almost to the top of the mountain for some more alpine shots in the mist and another lovely waratah … in the next post 🙂
