Round Mountain Lookout

Tasmania is actually the tail end of Australia’s Great Dividing Range, the range of mountains that runs like a spine down the Eastern seaboard of the continent. As a result, most travel in Tasmania involves crossing mountains. This afforded us frequent glorious vistas during the time we spent traversing Tassie. My first crossing was soon after we left the north coast, heading southward along the west coast. It was a cloudy day, and the clouds were close overhead. Like most of Australia’s mountains, these were not stunningly high peaks, but rather manageable mountains that invited rather than challenged. A brief stop at Round Mountain Lookout gave me an opportunity to photograph, and not just admire, the green mountains and drama of sky and earth.

    Gorgeous photo. Such a pretty place isn’t it – Tasmania I mean. Not sure I’ve been to this particular lookout!

  2. Thanks. I did think it was a rather lovely spot, and the clouds almost looked close enough to touch.
