Photographic Prints

A lone tree braves the elements high above Lake Hanson, Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania.

I’ve just returned home from the best week in Tassie… “Focus on the Fagus Week” hosted by Tinnieopener and ClaireBear. I’m working on a journal (or two) at present, but I managed to completely fill up my hard drives so I had to go and buy a new one and now I’m waiting for files to transfer so that I can finish off the journal!! Hopefully it’ll be completed tonight… :)

I’m just an Aussie girl who’s a bit mad about photography :)

    You can feel that cold wind..they certainly cop the elements up there.

  • :) Thanks, Rob. Yep – not an easy life for a tree at the top of those peaks.

    This is gorgeous Mieke. This is survivor … just barely. Looks on top of the world…

  • Thank you, Dick!! That’s pretty much what I thought too :)
