Inside the Snowdome

The classic shape of Cradle Mountain is imprinted in people’s minds as the view from Dove Lake. This is a view of its turreted western side in mid-winter, a sight unfamiliar to most. On this day I was enjoying the wild nip of winter and the tracery of snow on the plants but disappointed not to be seeing anything beyond fifty metres. With an easing of the wind, came an opening of the scene, before it was swallowed once more by blizzard.
