Sunrise and mist at Cradle Mountain

Sunrise Ronny Creek

I think its fair to say I have shot more than my fair share of sunrises down at Dove Lake over the years, so on a recent trip I stayed back at Ronny Creek and caught some very nice dawn light and mist over Crater Lake and Marions Lookout from Waldheim.

It was a wonderful clear morning and the mist was a stunning feature across the mountains. As the sun came up the mist glowed a beautiful pink.

Access to Dove Lake is currently restricted by private vehicle, so anyone wanting to shoot sunrise at Dove Lake needs to leave extra early to allow time to walk from Ronny Creek to Dove Lake (approx 2.5 kms). Anyone not feeling up to the walk could do a lot worse than watching the morning light from up at Waldheim. Your other option of course would be to browse my online gallery for sunrise shots of Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake, of which I have plenty 🙂
