Leeawuleena – Sleeping Waters

Leeawuleena – or “Sleeping Waters” is the aboriginal name for Lake St Clair. Here is a selection of dawn shots taken on the lakes edge. Utterly peaceful and serene.

Lake St Clair is a beautiful spot. Many of Tasmania’s best bushwalks start (and finish!) here. The Mt Rufus day walk, the Labyrinth area and the world famous Overland Track just for starters. A little further afield you have the Traveller Range and Walls of Jerusalem, the King William Range and Frenchmans Cap – a bushwalkers mecca! These shots were captured around Cynthia Bay and the boat ramp.

I had two cameras with me, so while I was composing and shooting with one, I sat the other still and shot a few timelapse sequences of the morning mist rushing over the lake. Below is the first one I have put together but as time goes by I will complete a few more.
