Photo 028 - Australia

Crater Lake, Tasmania

Crater Lake, Tasmania. This image was taken at the beginning of Australia's most famous walk - The Overland Track. Situated in central Tasmania, the walk is usually completed in about 5 to 6 days. Because of the extremes of weather, it can snow at any time of the year and will rain, huts have been placed along the track. Take your winter woolies with you and a decent rain coat. The photograph can only be taken about four days a year. This is because of the weather and the deciduous Fagus plant, the orange/red in the image. I am off there again in April to see if I can repeat it.
