Snow Gums, Mt Hotham, Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia

These three Snow Gums stand as some of the highest snow gums in Victoria. Surviving on the heights of Mt Hotham, they have somehow escaped the ravages of bushfires in the area in recent years. With late afternoon light penetrating the fog and creating a creamy feel to the snow, these three gums stood before me as testament to the harsh alpine conditions they withstand during the cold winter months while covered in snow and ice. I also shot these three snow gums from the same vantage point previously in summer, so that I could create a great complementary image. Braving the elements - Summer is the summer image of these three snow gums.
