Leeawuleena is the name that the Tasmanian Aboriginies knew Lake St Clair by. Meaning “Sleeping Water” it is the inspiration behind a new art exhibition to be held at the Lake St Clair Visitor Centre which will run from Friday June 6 to Sunday June 15. I am very pleased to also be contributing a couple of my own images from the region which contains some of the most magnificent walks in Tasmania including Mt Rufus and the Labyrinth.
The centrepiece of the exhibition will be the Glover Prize winning “Looking South from the Labyrinth to Mount Olympus and Lake St Clair”, by Mark Rodda and all the art, including my photography is inspired by the wild landscapes that the Lake St Clair end of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is renowned for.
I am contributing two images, one of the “Sleeping Waters” of Lake St Clair taken at Echo Point and the other one from Lake Elysia in the imaginatively named “Labyrinth” which is a little further afield.
For full details on the exhibition please visit the Parks and Wildlife Service website.
