Taken in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. This national park is a part of the Tasmanian World Heritage area which covers about 20% of Tasmania.
One of the intersesting things in Tasmania is that behind every corner or after every hill a new world opens up to you. In the 55kms in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park I have seen so many differentlandscapes, from mountain to savanne to rainforrest. Really worthwile to visit.
When driving on the Lyell Highway from Queenstown to Hobart I came towards this spot and the first idea was to stop right at this point and take the shot. I think you understand why.
I've posted another photo from the same national park which can be found here.

I would have stopped here too. The changing colours of the foreground are very attractive and the sharpness is very good. The white grass seems to draw the eye to the back of the image. The blueish tones to the mountains in the background contrast so well.

I was in Tasmania 10 years ago ... in more ways it really is like NZ South Is where I live. I love bush natural settings just like this one. I find the contrast of colours makes this composition quite pleasing to look at. Well done. TFS

Wonderful colours and great DOF are nice here, but what I like most is the view that goes beyond the grass, the trees, even beyond the mountains to reach the clouds. Nice composition.
Have a nice sunday,
