Reflections in Lake Lilla, Cradle Mountain by 

Nikon D40 digital on auto focus.
How old is the forest around Cradle Moutain, what type of forest is it and when did it develop? I am looking fir the word describing this unique forest.
This was the cleanest water in the world in 1991. Now that there is global warming, the tarns here in the mountains of Tasmania have started to loose its once full water level by the end of summer.
When we look at beautiful scenes, do you ever think about what is beyond and into the future? How long has it been here and how many years will it survive human interventions.
A Beautiful Day at Cradle Mountain?
I have been here many times but this is the first time the water was still and no wind.
Taken with a Nikon D40 11am

    The Cradle Valley in Tasmania Australia was carved out by glacial ice action about 20,000 years ago. Around 10,000 years ago the ice melted revealing what we now see.
    Crater Lake is 60 meters deep and the Mountain is named after
    Joseph Fossey. Fantastic image ! ;o))

  • The forest is much older than that Ester.
