    Some late season shots from the Overland Track, Tasmania. Some of you may have seen some of these in the Leica M thread, sorry :tomato2:

    M2 and Portra 400.

    Beautiful series, Nick. When we go back to Tasmania, we'll include the track in our plans!
    What is the name of the white trees w/o the leaves?

    They're Pencil Pine's (Athrotaxis cupressoides) - very closely related to the King Billy Pine you photographed at Dove Lake. These were killed by bushfire in the 1960's. They can live for up to 1500 years but have no tolerance to fire.

    Most were with the VM 35/f2.5 and 50/f1.5. I think the first lake shot was with an old Leica 90mm Tele Elmarit.

    I was already wondering if something like that had happened. Thanks.
    As said, it must be a spectacular walk!
