Devils in the snow Cradle Mountain

Recently I had the rather unique experience of photographing the Tasmanian Devils in the snow at Cradle Mountain!

Photographing the Tasmanian Devil at the Devils@Cradle sanctuary is a part of my 4 day Cradle Mountain Photography Workshop

My Cradle Mountain photography workshops all include a visit to the wonderful devil conservation park Devils@Cradle, and in early May our visit co-incided with a few flurries of snow.

The Spot-tailed quoll, one of Tasmania’s two quoll species and a “carnivorous marsupial” just like the devil – ie keep your fingers away!

While snow might have made our sunrise sessions a little tricky, it added something rather special to our visit to the devils and quolls at Devils@Cradle.

The critters didn’t seem particularly fussed by the snow but it was a nice experience for us as a group. My next photographic workshop up at Cradle Mountain runs from September 12-15 and there are still a couple of places available. Contact me now to book a place!
