Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia
Often when I spend extended times amongst the mountains of the Australian Alps and I am surrounded by fog, it is easy to feel isolated and forget that beyond what you can see lies much more of the landscape. This particular afternoon in the Victorian Alps was one such instance. I had been experiencing mixed weather including bitterly cold winds blowing across the mountain ranges which brought fog; shrouding the area from view. With little visibility, it became easy to forget that I was actually surrounded by some of Victoria's highest mountain tops. Later in the afternoon, as small breaks in the cloud occasionally appeared, I caught glimpses of what lay beyond the cloud and indeed beyond the snow covered ridges. Such moments for me are reminders that we are far from alone and that so much of the landscape lies beyond what we can often first see.
