Cumulonimbus, This is a classic 'Cumulonimbus' cloud, complete with anvil. The photo was taken near Deloraine in northern Tasmania.

Baker's Beach, Baker's Beach is on the coast of northern Tasmania. Notice the teeming crowds. The whole beach stretches for several miles.
Thermal Pool, This is a public swimming pool deep in the rainforest wilderness of southern Tasmania. The water for the pool originates from a thermal spring deep underground and provides warmed pool water all year round.
Painted Cliffs, These remarkable cliffs are located on Maria Island off the east coast of Tasmania. The 'painted' patterns are the result of different minerals leaching out of the sandstone. Maria Island is a national park.
Ski Village, This ski village lies atop Ben Lomond, a high plateau in northern Tasmania. This photo was taken during summer when the village goes into hibernation.
Cradle Mountain, Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. They are part of a massive world heritage national park, and the mountain has become something of an icon for Tasmania.
Pine Lake, Pine Lake is located in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. This remarkable photo shows the lake to be frozen over during winter. Australia may be the 'sunburnt country', but Tasmania gets cold enough in winter to see this lake consistently frozen over.
Stanley, Stanley is a picturesque fishing village on the end of a peninsula in northeast Tasmania. The plateau at the end of the peninsula is called 'The Nut', and is the remnant of a 'volcano plug', the solidified interior of an ancient volcano after the outer slopes of the volcano had eroded away millions of years ago.
Huon Valley, The Huon River and valley is in the Tasmanian wilderness of southern Tasmania. The photo was taken from the cantilever of the popular 'air walk', an elevated walkway weaving through the rain forest.
Sunset, Another photo of lenticular wave cloud during a sunset in northern Tasmania.
North Coast, This is the north coast of Tasmania. Taken from Boat Harbour.
Reflections, The sun reflecting on the ocean off Tasmania's east coast.
