[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cradle Mountain forms the northern end of the wild Cradle Mt - Lake St Clair National Park, itself a part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The jagged contours of Cradle Mountain epitomise the feel of a wild landscape, while ancient rainforest and alpine heathlands, buttongrass and stands of colourful deciduous beech provide a range of environments to explore. Icy streams cascading out of rugged mountains, stands of ancient pines mirrored in the still waters of glacial lakes and a wealth of wildlife ensure there is always something to captivate you. The area is one of the most popular natural areas in Tasmania. A visit will reveal why.

Hello Alaettin.
Totally disagree with David Morgan (but I suppose I have an advantage in having been there a few times). Great capture of the ever changing scene. Wonderful DOF and crisp sharp detail. Love the shot.
Kind regards,

It looks like Dove Lake, the mountain looks like Cradle Mountain, but what's that blue stuff next to the cloud? There wasn't any of that when I was there.
Not a bad shot, but it does appear a bit too dark on the right. The colours have been captured quite well. Thanks for bringing back memories of my last holidays.

good shot - i added the WS version of it. hope u'll like it. TFs

Hello Alaettin. A view which I will possibly never see even though I live about 2 hours drive away. Excellent natural colours, great POV.
I will also have to disagree with Gareth. All the well know Tasmanian photographers have this image in their galleries.
PS Many thanks for your comment on Heading Home
Yes, lovely workshop by Anna. I had actually cropped a fair bit of sky out too.

nefis bir derinlik var fotografta Alaettin. Tebrikler...

Merhaba Alaettin.
Cok guzel bir manzara fotografi olmus, tebrik ederim.
Bir kismin golgeli bir kismin gunesli olmasi hos olmus.
Bulutlar ve sudaki yansimalar cok hos gorunuyor.
Paylastigin icin tesekkurler.
En iyi dileklerimle, isigin bol olsun.


A very powerful image, Alaettin.
I like it very much.
Thanks for this view of the lake, because when we were there, a bit over two years ago, all we could see was the lake with nothing in the background because it was totally clouded over!
PS. While I always think it's great that someone tries a workshop, I have to say that I find the original more natural looking.

merhaba Alaettin
huzur veren harika dogal guzelligi olan bu mekana guzel bir bakis acisindan kadrajlama yapmissin. kompozisyon, renkler ve detaylar basarili olmus

Well captured, Alaettin. Not an easy shot with those big interspersed clouds creating large fields of shade. Still, one can recognize things well. Typical colours of the area, aren't they? (I once got to that reagion, it was all foggy and rainy. And rather cold.) Thank you for sharing this beautiful panorama with us! - Have a good week ahead! Cheers, Cordelia :)

Beautiful shot; we have yet to reach Cradle Mt. Have you any shots of Lake Pedder? I loved it there.
