Devils Gullet

A snowstorm passes over towering dolerite cliffs at Devils Gullet to allow a brief shower of light to flood the view across the remote Tasmanian central plateau with its forests, valleys, mountains and rugged terrain. The storm engulfing Clumner Bluff (1559m) was directly overhead a few minutes earlier with white out conditions and summer snow. The dolerite columns in the foreground are over 220m high and plunge into the Fisher River valley which is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, on the northern rim of the Great Western Tiers. Tasmania, Australia.
