Diana's Peak

Diana’s Peak National Park covers 81 hectares.  Tree Fern, Black Cabbage, Dogwood, Whitewood and Cabbage Trees dominate the vegetation of the Peaks.

The National Park is home to many different types of invertebrates; most common are the Golden Sail Spider, The Blushing Snail and Weevil.  Unfortunately I did not get an opportunity to photograph any of these!

Bringing to you the landscapes and flora from Diana’s Peak National Park:

  1. Hi Sandy, some lovely pics from Diana's national park. The scenery looks spectacular. Some of the pictures look like professional ones; have you been moonlighting as the island paparazzi?!! X

    1. Hello Jim I am pleased you loved the pics! Any favorites? I love the tree ferns. x

  2. I like the last photo - the barren, bare desert, with the scar of the airport runway through it; spectacular!! No, my real fave is the one called 'Lot's Wife in the background'; nice contrast of blue sky, rocks, and green plants. Nice shape to the mountain outline. Keep up the good photography work - show us some of Jamestown next. X

  3. Beautiful photos Sandy and the weather looks lovely! Sadly we can't say the same here as grey days seem to be the norm lately, wishing for sunny blue skies like you have! x

  4. Thanks Sharon. Lets hope your summer arrives soon. x
