These photos were taken in our backyard at Mt Picton, part of the Southwest National Park and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area – the highest ranked World Heritage Area in the world. I chose the name ‘Pandani Peak’ for this series of shots as I was extra impressed by the silhouettes they were striking against the mountain and surrounding terrain. We camped below the peak on its south facing side. The ground froze over night and stars exploded to life in the moons absence. It was beautiful.
The Southwest National Park – where these photos were taken – is the traditional lands of the Big River people. I respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of these lands and waters on which I was able to traverse, learn, and appreciate – and pay respect to the First Nations Peoples and their elders, past, present and future.
