Whether I am doing photography tuition or “regular” tour guiding with Leatherwood Tasmania Tours the place I come to the most is Cradle Mountain. All of my Cradle Mountain photography tours and workshops include sunrise and sunset photos at Dove Lake whereas other tour groups visit the lake at more conventional hours. Last week I was doing “regular” guiding and so I had the evenings and mornings to myself.
Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake must be the most photographed location in Tasmania, and with good reason. I never tire of this scene and at the risk of becoming known as the “Dove Lake Photographer” I present you with this selection of sunrise and sunset photos of Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake. All were taken during a three night stay there last week.
What is always fascinating to me is that more often than not I have the lake entirely to myself for these shoots, including the amazing night shooting the aurora australis at Cradle Mountain a few moths ago. It always bowls me over that there aren’t more people out watching scenes like this but to be honest there is something fundamentally calming, relaxing and rewarding about watching natures show unfold on your own…

For more information on my Tasmanian photography tours and workshops please have a look at this page. In addition to Cradle Mountain, I also run workshops to the Bay of Fires, Tarkine, around Hobart, and Mt Field. Contact me to book a spot. Tours run for a minimum of two, so a personalised experience is guaranteed.
