Tasmania in January — it's summer, and it looks gloriously warm, but don't be fooled, it can be super chilly, especially when you're up top of kunanyi / Mount Wellington and the wind is blowing.
This photograph was taken during a test run up the mountain. Having arrived in Hobart for the first time ever, I knew I wanted to capture a sunrise from the kunanyi summit, but this called for a trip up during daylight hours, to make sure I knew where I was going.
This was one of the first shots I took, and it ended up being my favourite, even more so than the photos I shot at sunrise the following day (by which time clouds had rolled in making for dark, freezing, and rainy conditions!).
If you're in Hobart, the trip up kunanyi / Mount Wellington is well worthwhile. A short drive from town, the summit offers spectacular views over Hobart — and if you have time there's plenty of walking trails and spots to picnic.
