Cradle Mountain Plateau

cradle mountain, cradle mountain national park, australian landscape photography

Hi Everyone,

This is the site I saw from the Overland Track just before I started my last push towards Cradle Mountain.  If you look really hard you’ll see Kitchen Hut right at the base of Cradle Mountain.   In this shot I love the fact that you can see most of Cradle Mountain and Barn Bluff in the background.

Was it cold up there?  It sure was, it was around -5 degrees which is pretty cold in my books!   I’d love to return to Cradle Mountain one last time and grab a helicopter and cover it and the surrounding areas from the air as it would be pretty easy to get some amazing stuff.   This is a five image stitch with each shot comprising of two exposures one for the mountain and the other for the sky.

Hope you guys enjoy it,


Jamie Paterson

      Hi Mark,

      Thanks mate. You must be busy as Ben managed to sneak a comment on here before you. 😉 Did you get out to Rotto this weekend? If you did are we going to see any shots?

    Very awe-inspring. It is an ancient dramatic view I really like that and you caught great clouds as well which adds a lot of drama. It is pretty bloody great as it is, hardly see the need to add any of my comments to it.

      Haha. Its taken me two years to hear this. I can go to sleep happy tonight! Seriously though, thank you Flemming. I put a lot of thought into this shot.

      Hi Tony,

      Thanks very much mate. I was determined to get at least some shots that weren’t taken from Dove Lake!

    Awesome Jamie , great perspective of the region. Covering it by air would certainly be awe inspiring indeed. Cheers Adrian
