Trip to the Vale of Belvoir

Several months ago, I joined the Nature Photographers Tasmania on a trip to the the Vale of Belvoir conservation area (above Cradle Mt).

I had such a fantastic time on the trip, 4 hour drive each way… (On the way up we stopped off at the Devil’s Gullet which gives an amazing 180 degree view looking towards Cradle Mountain and Walls of Jerusalem).  We stayed in the Cradle Mt national park and drove out to the vale everyday to shoot. From our hut we could look out over the valley with a view of Cradle Mt – even though it was mostly covered in cloud. The Vale consist of button-grass plains with a river, a lake, several ponds and myrtle trees. The whole place is covered in wombat burrows and limestone karst and sink holes.

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy has since published a short article about our trip (and one of my photos) in their newsletter. Some of my pictures can be seen here on my facebook page.
