Alpine Moods

Sitting at around 1650m ASL, Tony Middleton and I found a nice little sheltered spot behind a vertical boulder the size of a bus and watched the ever changing moods of the alpine landscape without the icy Autumn breeze. Managed to capture some nice light on the burnt snow gums as the sun danced quickly across the landscape and touching the peaks. I love the power and the moods of the mountains and the feeling of being in them.


Water Sculpture

A new perspective on some waterfalls in the Victorian Alps. The sculpting of the granite over time by water drew my attention so extracted the 70-200mm out of the bag and came up with this abstract of the colour and form of the rockface, which is sometimes devoid of water during really dry times.


Water’s Edge

Love the colour of the rocks and the crystal clear mountain water on Mt Buffalo in the Victorian Alps. Wouldn’t want to suffer vertigo here and lots of water ripping over it from recent high levels of rainfall making it a place to be respected as well as admired.


Mountain Ranges

Up in the mountains over easter, nothing new there.  Some people are drawn to the beach more, I seem to be drawn to mountains. This one is my favourite, Mt Buffalo. With this particular shot I had to back the saturation off as it looked too intense to be real! Tony Middleton was with me, shooting off in the other direction to the pastel hues that he is renowned for.


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
