After a dismal visit weather-wise to Cradle Mountain in NW Tasmania a few days ago we returned determined to photograph the fagus in its autumn glory. Unfortunately again the rain, hail and COLD ++ kept me rugged up in the car. I did manage a single photo of Pencil Pine Creek off the bridge before my hands and cheeks froze over!!!

    She certainly was pumping by the time I left on the Saturday… And looks like you had all the weather conditions we had for the week too :o)

  • Aaarrgh it was quite unpleasant…..and I still saw some MAD people taking off in the hail to hike round Dove Lake!! Not to worry though, we live about 1 1/2 hours drive away, will head up again if it gets a good dumping of snow. (The fagus can wait till next year!!!)

    Hey Karine. Was this on Wednesday? The weather was brutal then! Hail, wind and snow on cradle.
    Lovely shot of this nice waterfall. Speaking of snow, today, we woke up to a winter wonderland here at cradle. It was everywhere :)

  • Thanks Cameron. YES it was on Wednesday, and I was wondering if you got up there! Hope you did better than me with my one and only shot!! Looking forward to seeing some prize winning ones:)
