A couple of weeks ago there was a massive cold snap over Tasmania and kunanyi/Mt Wellington became a stunning winter wonderland backdrop to the city. The road up was closed for many days as clearing went ahead at higher altitudes, but foot access was permitted. Having seen a couple of news stories of people being caught in blizzard like conditions at the summit, we decided one fine morning to take an easy walk straight up the road, seeing how far we could get before sunrise. As it turned out we made it to the scree and snow gums near the “Big Bend” so we enjoyed some very nice winter morning light there.
On the way back we took a very welcome break at the great little Lost Freight Cafe at the Springs. A coffee and their cranberries slice was an absolutely perfect breakfast 🙂
I’ve added a couple of these shots to my online gallery, and one of them is in fact already hanging out at our gallery in Richmond! We have made the gallery a bit more wintery, make sure you drop in sometime soon!
