Mount Feathertop and Mount Fainter, Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia
Below zero with a minus 14 degrees wind chill, I was huddled on the ground around my tripod to protect my camera from the buffeting winds. The spectacular Mount Feathertop made for a stunning backdrop. This awesome experience was how I started the day. Minutes after this photograph, the first flurries of snow began to fall as a snow storm set in, dumping nearly a metre of snow on the region. I love being out in conditions like this to capture the true magic of the Australian Alps in winter.
