Marion’s Lookout

Hi Everyone,

Well by now you all know the story, I did the walk to the base of Cradle Mountain.   Well this spot was taken 2.5hrs into the journey, in fact I was only ever intending to go to this place called Marion’s Lookout and no further.

Why I continued on I’ll never know nor ever regret, I guess I figured I’d come this far, why stop?   Marion’s Lookout really does provide an absolutely amazing view of both Cradle Mountain but also of the surrounding area and I spent quite sometime here just soaking it all up.

Its easy to see why Gustav Weindorfer wanted to spend all of his days here.

I hope you guys enjoy it.

Cradle Mountain

Hi Crew,

Cradle Mountain, what a stunning piece of the Tasmanian landscape.   I drove past it quite a few times when I was in Tasmania in 1987 but I never had the opportunity to stop and have a look at it unfortunately.  Since then its been burnt on my mind.    I’ve been to Tasmania six times over the years but never as a photographer and finally when I went there in January this year I was lucky enough to spend the night at Cradle Mountain.

It captivated me, it was beautiful, seemingly untouched and still very wild.  It drew me in and I wanted to spend more time there so I planned to stay at Cradle Mountain for 5 days a couple of weeks ago.   It was so much fun.   As I was there for 5 days I got to see the mountains different moods and absorb the atmosphere.   There is a very strong sense of place running through this place.

Its no wonder Gustav Weindorfer lived most of his adult life there.   Well I hope you guys enjoy this photo.   If you ever get the chance to head on over to Tassie make sure you spend at least a few days at Cradle Mountain.
