Dove Lake Sunrise

Nathan Dukes, 2019

Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania Australia

Fujifilm X-T2, 10mm, F8, ISO200, 1/125s

It’s easy to see why this photograph at this location is so well loved by photographers the world over. It seems to represent Tasmania as a whole in one frame: cold weather, rugged peaks and colonial charm.

With cold wet feet, my tripod in the lake and my camera just inches above the water, I was able to capture the boatshed from an imposing angle, bolstering its size compared

to Cradle Mountain and her surrounding peaks.


The cold, calm conditions allowed a thin layer of mist to remain on the water’s surface until the sun breached the ranges left of frame.


Until then, it was a beautiful quiet hour I was fortunate enough to enjoy, and a moment that can be yours to enjoy now too.
