Mount Hotham, VIC
Often in landscape photography you have to play the conditions that are dealt with you. Much to my disappointment the conditions on this day were flat, uninteresting with white-out conditions rendering visibility to only a few meters. As I was driving along the Great Alpine Road on the way to Mount Hotham, I noticed a cluster of snow gums crusted in ice from some rain the previous night. I pulled over to the side of the road and used the white-out conditions to create a sense of mystery and depth behind the ice-crusted tree. It almost feels like an unknown abyss.
