Cradle Mountain Plateau

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,

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

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.
