For many people a trip to Cradle Mountain starts and ends at the Car Park on Dove Lake, in fact not wishing to sound critical it is surprising how often I have seen people drive up, park, take a picture then jump back into the car and drive away. It is hard to imagine that same thing happening 100 years ago before motor cars were common. Visitors to Cradle Valley came by Bullock Cart, Pack Horse and walked for many days.

There is a wonderful lakeside walk that goes right around Dove Lake and 20 minutes along the Eastern shore is this small beach. On cold winter days the wind often blows strongly with an “in your face” bite. Apart from the discomfort of the wind I had to find some shelter for the camera and tripod otherwise the image could have been blurred. Moving into the trees behind the beach gave a nice framing affect and as luck often plays an important part in landscape photography the Sun came out to illuminate the trees as the image was taken. Humbly I admit I did wait awhile until the light improved.
