Mt Cawthorn on Lake Pedder

Postby ILUVSWTAS » Sun 04 Dec, 2011 6:30 pm

I was just looking through some pictures from a trip MJD and I did at the end of winter this year and realised some of the scenery was quite stunning. Thought i'd share.

Quality is poor as they have been resized to fit onto posting size for this forum, but you get the idea.

Here's a pic of ILUVSWTAS and a panoroma looking west to part of the Franklads and all of the Wilmot Range. I reckon that Sprent is on the far right. And guess what: I've got a version of the first photos as my wall paper - a magic view once we had escaped from an unnecessary (as it later turned out) bit of scrub.

Yer, I'm a bit the same. It's a good change when it's just a few hours.
Easier when there's plenty of water around, which is seldom the case up here.
