    Here's the first collection of photos from my recent 8-day Overland Track trip in the Tasmanian central highlands. Check the 'Nature' forum for the other collection :smile:

    All shots with the GH2, 7-14 ASPH, Nokton 25mm and m.ZD 40-150 MSC.

    Some really great photos there, thanks!
    I like number 2 : a frightening drop,
    and number 3 : tangled trunks.

    Incredible pictures Nic. I was in Tassie at the start of the year and went for a fly over the overland track. I must say that its a big walk! How far did you reckon you went?

    Here's an aerial view of the Cradle Mountain/ Overland Track district I took earlier this year.

    That's a great shot! I've never had an opportunity to go over in a plane, although if I get around to doing the South Coast Track this summer I will :smile:

    Depending on who you ask the track is 87km from end to end, or 70km if you catch the Lake St Clair ferry. We also spent a night in Pine Valley so we probably did 110km through with packs, plus a few side trips...

    That's a great set. Really really nice stuff.

    #6 actually gave me a brief case of vertigo..
