"It Is Magnificent..."

Location: Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania.


An 8-image, Autopano Pro stitched panorama of Cradle Mountain, taken from Marions Lookout above Dove Lake.


The title is an ode to Gustav Weindorfer who in the early 1900's promoted this stunning region of non-mainland Australia and proclaimed "This must be a national park for the people for all time. It is magnificent, and people must know about it and enjoy it".


Shot in the late afternoon in early spring, that morning Cradle Mountain was completely snow covered. Below the small sunlit Barn Bluff on the right lead marker posts and footprints through 30cm deep snow marking the parks internationally renowned Overland Track.
