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.

  1. Beautiful shot mate, should try heading there in winter as I did. This wasn’t a stream, it was a torrent with snow everywhere. Mt Kate Hut was only just accessible due to the amount of water……

    • Hi Andrew,

      Thanks for stopping by. I’m definitely heading back there in late winter or early spring. I was able to step across some stones to get to Mt Kate Hut because the water level was so low and still.

      Thanks for that. This may very well be the photo that I put into a few awards this year.

    • Mel,

      How good it is to see you still around!!!! Believe me when I say you are certainly sorely missed in the community. How is motherhood the second time round? Thank you so much for your comments about photos.

      Stay in touch,

      Jamie

  9. Hi Jamie,

    I have so many great memories of Cradle Mountain. I once did a two day trek around the lake with a sleepover 200 metres from the summit.

    You have captured this well and I love the colours.

    • Hi Graeme,

      Thanks very much for that. Not sure if I’d sleep near the summit, I get pretty freaked out by heights.

    • Hi Tim,

      Certainly a compliment considering you’re a local. Hope you have fun down there. Will you be trying to get any shots of Mt Roland at all?

    • Hi Merv,

      Thanks very much mate and I just love your Quokka shot. Like I was saying on your blog I’ve never seen a Quokka joey before.

      Jamie

  16. Yes, I will be trying to get some new images of Mt Roland, also try and get some more up around the Cradle as well!

  17. Beautiful shot Jamie. It’s nice to see someone doing something a little different to the normal run of the mil shot of Dove Lake with the popular hut.

    Thursday, February 25, 2010 at 11:12

    • Hi Alex,

      Thanks for that I really appreciate it The irony is though, I was going to put up the Dove Lake shot next! I might have to hold off for a bit.

  20. Jamie, you really nailed that one. Excellent work and definately print, frame and competition worthy. Well done. I spent 2 days at Cradle Mountain a couple of years ago and loved it.

    • Hi Simon,

      Thanks for that mate. This photo is growing on me more and more.
