Cradle Mountain National Park

cradle mountain national park tasmania australian landscape photography

Well here it is, another shot from awesome Tasmania.    After getting some great shots of Cradle Mountain itself I was driving back out of the national park when I saw this cool little stream that was just asking to be shot so I had to oblige.   Just off to the right from centre you can see the tips of Cradle Mountain itself.   This stream was just so nice and it was running past a rustic old mountain hut, which I managed to get some photos of as well.   I know I’ve said it before but I’m definitely going back to Tasmania to try and capture its beauty properly.  I could spend four weeks in Cradle Mountain National Park easily without getting bored.

Cradle Mountain must be one of the coldest parts of Tasmania, after this shoot I went home and even though I had two sleeping bags on I was still really cold.   It was funny the next morning I got up and whilst I was shooting I met a local photographer.   I told him I couldn’t believe how cold it was and he said he thought it was really warm!   Anyhow I hope you guys enjoy this photo.  I’m really proud of it.

Did anyone manage to capture the sunset tonight (Sunday) it was another amazing sunset.

Elizabeth St Wharf – Hobart

elizabeth wharf hobart tasmania australian landscape photography

Just another example of stunning Hobart, Tasmania.   This is Elizabeth St wharf in Hobart which really brought back some strong memories for me as I tied up to this exact same spot twice when I was still in the Navy.   Hobart was always a favourite stop over us as submariners, because of its character, though I never understood why the Navy was so insistent on sending us down there only during winter.  It was so cold.   I really like this shot as it captures the big tall ship so well.   I’d seen it the evening before and was really captivated by it (anyone who knows me knows I love boats).

Settings: 5 Stitch Image

Aperture – F16

ISO – 50

Shutter – 1/4sec

Again processing this just makes me want to go back and capture some more of Tasmania’s beauty.   Anyone else as fascinated by boats as I am?

Hobart Tasmania

Hobart Tasmania Constitution Dock Australian Landscape Photography Mount Wellington

Not sure what WordPress has done to this pic to make it look soft in the small version, but if you click on the photo and view the large version its sharp.

Ok, all jokes Tasmanian jokes aside, Tasmania rocks!   I am definitely going back again this year to cover it in more detail.   I could’ve spent days in Hobart itself just taking photos alone.   This was the view that I was presented with my first morning in Tasmania and I was just blown away by it.   I was hoping for mirror like reflections in the water and to have Mount Wellington light up like it did was just a bonus.    This particular morning I also managed to get over to Salmanca Place and captured some pretty cool shots from there with Mount Wellington in the background as well.   Tasmania, a landscape photographers dream.

Hopefully Tim from Island Images will approve of this shot. 🙂

As always for those who are curious:

Aperture – F22

ISO 50

Shutter – 1/4sec

The roads are so steep and have so many corners that I think if I moved to Tassie I’d buy a WRX or EVO just to deal with the corners.    To give you an idea of how hard it is to get around on the West Coast, it took us almost 3hrs to travel 70kms around the Queenstown area.

Has anyone else considered a trip to Tassie and what areas did you think of shooting?

I hope you all have a great weekend.
