Cradle Mountain, what a stunning piece of the Tasmanian landscape. I drove past it quite a few times when I was in Tasmania in 1987 but I never had the opportunity to stop and have a look at it unfortunately. Since then its been burnt on my mind. I’ve been to Tasmania six times over the years but never as a photographer and finally when I went there in January this year I was lucky enough to spend the night at Cradle Mountain.
It captivated me, it was beautiful, seemingly untouched and still very wild. It drew me in and I wanted to spend more time there so I planned to stay at Cradle Mountain for 5 days a couple of weeks ago. It was so much fun. As I was there for 5 days I got to see the mountains different moods and absorb the atmosphere. There is a very strong sense of place running through this place.
Its no wonder Gustav Weindorfer lived most of his adult life there. Well I hope you guys enjoy this photo. If you ever get the chance to head on over to Tassie make sure you spend at least a few days at Cradle Mountain.
