Moods of the Mountain

The rules: Photos of Mount Wellington taken from my balcony.

There are plenty of other places I can and will take photos of the mountain, but they will appear elsewhere. These ones have to be taken from home. They pretty much appear in reverse chronological order (so the one at the top is usually the most recent). Some of them are not particularly good photos, but the idea is that they capture the many and varied moods displayed by the mountain.

20 June 2015. A crisp winter morning, with a heavy dusting of snow.

4 June 2015. Moon, mist, and the almost missing mountain

12 May 2015. Somewhere, under the rainbow(s) ...

6 May 2015. The first portents of winter (I had to be in Launceston the following day and so
missed seeing the mountain snow cover extending way down to the foothills, but I did
have the excitement of snow from Spring Hill to St Peter's Pass on the Midlands Highway).

11 April 2015. Pastels at sunrise.

10 April 2015. Horizontal cloud formation at sunrise.

3 April 2015. Clouds flowing over the top on Good Friday.

31 March 2015. A pale pink glow at sunrise, followed by smoke haze at
sunset resulting from fuel reduction burns in the surrounding areas.

 

29 March 2015. Late evening sun just over a week after autumn equinox.
Daylight savings ends next weekend; things will be much darker if I take this
shot then at the same time I took it tonight (6:45pm).

 

19 March 2015. Visible for just a few minutes, this sunrise-generated rainbow
disappeared along with the glow on the mountain once the clouds hid the sun
behind me seconds after the second shot was taken.

 

17 March 2015. Sunrise-flavoured fairy-floss at the summit.

14 March 2015. Ominous clouds in the afternoon.
