Mount Feathertop, The Razorback and Mount Buffalo, Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia
I am always drawn to photographing Mount Feathertop and the Razorback in winter. Since I was kid, Mount Feathertop has held something special to me. From the views of it from Mount Hotham, to walking up its steep slopes and the view from the summit, it has drawn me back to the Victorian Alps time and time again. Mount Feathertop is the second-highest mountain in the Australian state of Victoria, rising to 1,922 metres and is usually covered in snow from June to September. Unlike many other Australian mountains, Feathertop has steep summit slopes instead of a rounded summit dome. It is this aspect that makes it great to photograph in winter, as it is the only real Australian alpine 'peak' that gets covered in snow. On this evening, after a great sunset, I decided to remain at this location a little longer and was rewarded with the sky on the horizon lighting up with the great colours you see here. It made for a terrific contrast against the snow covered Razorback and Mount Feathertop.
