Taken with a Canon EOS 60D, 8-16mm lens (ISO-100, F18, 1 sec exposure) editing done in CS5

Location: Dove Lake, Cradle Mountain NP, Tasmania, Australia

Taken just minutes before the sky really turned it on (and I got this shot) for the only sunrise I was actually up for whilst down in Cradle for Fagus Week (rest of the time it was either raining or threatening to rain).

Probably one of the most photographed lakes (and boatsheds) in Australia (it certainly is the most recognised boatshed), you can’t not go to Cradle without getting “your” shot of the Dove Lake Boatshed.

It was a great week (despite the weather)… Bring on Fagus 2014 I say…

If you think you may be interested in joining the festivities next year keep an eye out on Tinnieopener or ClaireBear’s amazing feeds for images and journals.
