Snow in Southern Tasmania
Capturing the beauty of snow-capped peaks is a popular challenge for landscape photographers. Tasmania’s far south offers some of the most stunning scenery for photographers to capture, especially during winter when snow blankets the mountaintops.
The light in Tasmania’s far south can be particularly striking during the winter months. The sun’s low angle creates long shadows that add depth and contrast to your shots. Look for interesting patterns in the snow, such as windblown ridges or deep crevices. Try incorporating the foreground into your shots, such as rocks or trees, to add perspective and create a sense of scale.
Photographing light snow on the peaks in Tasmania’s far south can be a rewarding experience for any photographer. To make the most of your photography trip, you should plan ahead and choose the right equipment for the job. In the below shots, I used a Canon R6 and RP with a 24-105 f4 L series lens, and the Canon RF 100-400 f/5.6-8 IS USM lens.
A dusting of light snow was showing on the peaks in southern Tasmania Sunday, 7th May 2023. All images were taken from around the Southport area in Tasmania’s Far South. This is more of an ongoing photo blog of snow in southern Tasmania.
