Doug Thost and I just spent a few weeks at Cradle Mt, gathering material for an upcoming Cradle Mt National Park interpretive film, commissioned by Jenny Cook from the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service.
Conditions were for the most part atmospheric, but uncharacteristically warm and dry for this time of year. The Native Deciduous Beech - Fagus, was building up to its peak autumn colour and was best appreciated from the air.
Doug spent a few cold nights shooting star trail time-lapses by Dove Lake, on the odd occasion when 'all the stars aligned' :-))
After much weather watching, on the morning of April 20, we took to the air to shoot some aerials - expertly flown by Bruce Colwell. Flying for 2.5 hours in freezing conditions with the doors off the Squirrel AS350B2, was hard to take, but the stunning scenery was a great distraction!!!
Intending to conduct another field trip in mid-winter, which will ensure there's more than ample material to work with in the edit suite JS
