Australian Landscape Photography

Icy Pole

Taken a while back on a balmy evening in the Vic high country on top of Mt Buffalo. Can only just see the faint outline of the Cathedral on the left which was about 50 metres away through the fog. The fires had been through relatively recently and created this juxtaposition of fire and ice.ABvm004

  1. Hi Andrew,

    What a fantastic image I can certanly see the juxtaposition between fire and ice. I love the way you’ve captured the thick ice hanging off the branches. Never seen it like that.

  2. Thanks for the comments Jamie, really the first time that I had seen it like this myself. An impressive place to be but it was bloody freezing.

    Cool scene Andrew – I dig the contrasting colour of the boulder with the rest of the scene. It’s pretty awesome when you see those frozen shards of ice shaped by the wind hey…

  4. Thanks Tony, I can still hear the ice shards tinkling in the breeze. Almost surreal

  5. This is one of my favourite so far Andrew. Since knowing Christian and Paul Parin, I have found a much greater appreciation for Landscapes and when I see images like this, it makes me realize the lengths that you guys will go to to make your images. Must have been bloody cold out there for starters. Great Photograph.

  6. Thanks for the comments Bill, this was just an image I had floating around and thought that I’d post on the blog, it isn’t on the website but I might have another look at it. It was a little chilly up there but a steep walk so the heart was working, just didn’t hang around up there too long…..
