Jamie Paterson – Images of Inspiration, Captivation, and Fascination

Cradle Mountain Plateau

Hi Everyone,

This is the site I saw from the Overland Track just before I started my last push towards Cradle Mountain.  If you look really hard you’ll see Kitchen Hut right at the base of Cradle Mountain.   In this shot I love the fact that you can see most of Cradle Mountain and Barn Bluff in the background.

Was it cold up there?  It sure was, it was around -5 degrees which is pretty cold in my books!   I’d love to return to Cradle Mountain one last time and grab a helicopter and cover it and the surrounding areas from the air as it would be pretty easy to get some amazing stuff.   This is a five image stitch with each shot comprising of two exposures one for the mountain and the other for the sky.

Hope you guys enjoy it,


Jamie Paterson

    • Hi Mark,

      Thanks mate. You must be busy as Ben managed to sneak a comment on here before you. 😉 Did you get out to Rotto this weekend? If you did are we going to see any shots?

  4. Very awe-inspring. It is an ancient dramatic view I really like that and you caught great clouds as well which adds a lot of drama. It is pretty bloody great as it is, hardly see the need to add any of my comments to it.

    • Hi Tony,

      Thanks very much mate. I was determined to get at least some shots that weren’t taken from Dove Lake!

    Awesome Jamie , great perspective of the region. Covering it by air would certainly be awe inspiring indeed. Cheers Adrian
