    Hi Roz,
    Thanks with your feedback about the balck and white images. They do look great!
    4 days in Tasmania. Do you have a car? Where do you arrive. Launceston or Hobart?
    Freycinet is beautiful, as is Cradle Mountain. If you are staying in the north of Tasmania, try and fit in both!

    Distances are not so long in Tassie but driving time is, you need to try and plan it so you are not driving all day.

    let us know your plans and we will try and make some suggestions.

    Hi Frank and Sue,
    Thanks for your informative site, it enabled me to prepare myself for my visit. I followed your advice and took the trail from Dove Lake up to the Face Trail..wow..very steep in places, but the views were spectacular !! The day was crystal clear, skies a deep blue which framed the Mountains to perfection…think I got lucky there ! I have photo’s that make others who have visited on day’s not so clear, very envious. Thanks again, and I will be back, as there is so much to see.

    Hi Peter,
    Thanks for dropping by!

    The Face Track can be a challenge, we find it harder going down rather than up!

    Would love to share some of your images and story of you are interested. Just shoot us an email at frank@cradlemountain.net if you are interested.

    Hi Frank and Sue,
    Nice set of photos, but then I would have to say that being a Tasmanian. Is Black Island a Tassie destination? You have me puzzled on this one and I generally like to think I know or have heard of most places in Tassie (even off the beaten path).

  • Andrew Bowen said:

    Is it on the Tamar Wetlands?

  • Frank (author) said:

    Hi Andrew,
    No we have never been to Black Island but I actually double checked before I put up the shot as I had never heard of it either.

    It is near Strahan (I hope!) This is the link to a map of it (as taken by the photographers camera GPS)

    Hope this makes sense!

    (The other answer is that the photographer called it “Black Island ” because it was black!)

    A pleasure to see one of my images in such good company. Thanks.

  • Frank (author) said:

    Thanks Fraser ,
    Loved the light in yours.

    Cheers and I hope we attributed it correctly!
