Pencil Pine sentinels


Cradle Mountain looks spectacular in autumn with the changing colours of the Fagus. On this cold, cloudy and windy day, the shelter of this pond next to Lake Hanson provided a welcome respite. Then the sun just lit up the scene and exposed the Fagus and Pencil Pines to perfection.
