Lake St Clair

Waves of snow clouds roll through the northern end of Lake St Clair partially obscuring the craggy dolerite peaks of the Tasmanian central highlands. Not the sort of scenery most people expect from Australia, the shot was taken looking north towards Narcissus Hut from a small boat on the lake. Heavily glaciated in the last ice age the lake is the deepest in Australia at 160 m (525ft) and covers approximately 45 km2 (17 sq mi). Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Central Highlands, Tasmania, Australia.
