Cradle Mountain in Autumn: Fagus, Fungi and the Night Sky
Autumn is a wonderful time of year for photography and I have set some dates in late April for a 3 day Cradle Mountain photography Workshop to enjoy the colours and sights of autumn in Tasmania.
The workshop will run from April 28 ~ 30, and during this time we will shoot 2 sunrises and 2 sunsets at Dove Lake, as well as attempting a night sky session at the lake, where I have had some wonderful experiences in the past, including startrails and the aurora.
During the day we will be exploring the lush green alpine rainforest for two of its most colourful attractions – the tiny autumn fungi on the forest floor, and the leaves of the deciduous beech which should be displaying lovely hues of yellow and orange at this time of year.
We will also photograph the historic huts at Waldheim and Mt Kate, adding a little human element to the wild natural beauty of this iconic part of Tasmania’s World Heritage Area.
And as if that wasn’t enough, on the return trip to Hobart we will spend a few hours at Liffey Falls, which is one of Tasmania’s most picturesque waterfalls.
The workshop is suitable for all levels of photography experience. I welcome beginners and enjoy teaching, especially out in the field at this time of year!
