It's been a while since my last post. We had a fantastic snow event last Saturday here around Mt Roland and Sheffield and of course I was out with the cameras.....
Once again I scored some spectacular conditions on my hike on Sunday morning. These 2 views are looking across the south side of Mt Van Dyke. Without any real planning I timed it perfectly to get the sun high enough in the sky to light up the fog swirling around the rocky outcrops.To get to this spot I had to drive 5 minutes to the start of the trail and then hike for an 1hr 37 mins...and climb almost 700m. I reckon it was worth it!
Some more great news on Sunday morning! People quite often ask me why I get up so early for my hikes. I hope these images from this mornings hike to Mt Claude and beyond answer that question...it's all about the light! Some great views across to Cradle Mountain in the first one just as the sun lights up the peaks and the fog hung around for a really long time allowing me to finish off with a great view to Round Mountain when I got back to the car.
Made the hike up the Mt Roland Face Track early this morning and the low lying fog way down below looked pretty nice! After all the rain overnight there was a lot of running water across the track and the descent was very slow due to the slick condition of the track.
We have quite a few fields of poppies in the local district here in north-west Tassie and they offers some pretty nice photo opportunities. This field was mainly the purple variety with a nice sprinkling of the more traditional red version adding that extra colour burst.
