Wineglass Bay from Mt Amos

Mt Amos, Freycinet National Park, Tasmania, Australia

It was forecast for relatively clear skies so I decided to head up along the East Coast and capture some night photographs. The Moon was a waning slither and there was a chance of the Southern Lights. I recalled from my last trip up Mt Amos that the view mostly looks south so I figured if the sky was clear I might be in luck with the Aurora. It wasn’t to be.

I hiked up the track and midnight and waited patiently for the skies to clear. It was cloudy all night long – but how could anyone be disappointed with a view like this!

This photograph was a clear winner capturing the moment the sun rises out of the distant horizon. Wineglass Bay turned on it’s world famous turquoise waters as the clouds kept rolling by.
