Mount Feathertop, Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia
From an early age I've been drawn to the summit of Mount Feathertop, with some of my earliest bushwalks as a child walking up this mountain. Mount Feathertop is the second highest mountain in the Australian state of Victoria. Unlike most other Victorian mountains, Mount 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. Snow remaining in the summit gullies in spring gives the appearance of feathers - hence the name "Feathertop".
