SUMMER LIGHT

The Razorback and Mount Feathertop, Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia

On this summer evening, having walked out along the Razorback, the last light of the day lit up a small section of the ridge in front of me. I captured this photo before the sun set and I watched the last remaining glow highlighting the mountain ranges in the distance. Eventually heading back along the track in the dark, I was feeling a real sense of remoteness. I reflected on what was a great way to end the day in the Victorian high country.

Meandering its way from Mt Hotham all the way to Mt Feathertop, the Razorback is a walking track that runs along this often sharp, treeless ridgeline of the Australian Alps. In both summer and winter (when it is covered in snow), it is a beautiful way to access Mount Feathertop and experience expansive 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains for the majority of the hike.
