Taken with a Canon EOS 60D, 18-55mm with ND400 + Grad Filters (F8, ISO-100, 300 sec exposure) and only sharpened slightly in CS5 (gotta luv that)

Location: Heaven on Earth, the beautiful, breathtaking Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, Australia

This mornings sunrise, those that know me well enough know that sunrise isn’t my thing (I like sleeping that little bit extra), but being that today looked like the last clear morning for the rest of the week (pretty much the rest of my time here at Cradle) I made the effort.. Glad I did!!! It was magic…

I’m down here for the week with a whole swag of bubblers for the Fagus, it is Australia’s only winter-deciduous tree, and is unique to Tasmania.

    Great shot Sharon!! I love the light on the peaks. Hope you have decent weather for the rest of your time at Cradle……..we intended taking a drive up there this week to see (AND photograph) the fagus, but might have to wait as the forecast is for rain every day!!!!

  • It’s cleared up today but a tad windy.. Stayed indoors yesterday morning cause of the rain but by the arvo it was that light misty rain which added to the mood…. Might see you later this week then :o)
