Rams Planet

Close enough to the highest point in mainland Oz i reckon.

Rams Head North 2190m, noting that Mount Kosciuszko is 2228m a grand total of 38m taller..:) Mount Kosciuszko is that sloping hill over there on the horizon. Fun fact for the day, Mount Everest is almost exactly 4 times taller than this peak, i guess technically I can say I have walked a quarter of the way to the highest point in the world. :)

Another fun fact, Norway has about 180 peaks over 2000 metres high but its tallest is only 2469m, just a smidge over our little hill over here.

I slept there

yup, i did sleep there, and i had to shake down the tent quite a few times in the night to stop the snow piling up :)

Snow Starburst

This place makes sunrise without clouds simply awesome :)

Using a feature in the landscape to take the edge away from the sun can be you capture shots like this using single exposures, in this case, this panorama was 3 separate shots stitched together. Placing the sun just behind a branch on the frozen tree meant that the dynamic range of the scene could still be captured by the camera in one exposure as opposed to bracketing the frames..

White out

A great example of how the landscape can just disappear into misty snow and before you know it the trees you just past are gone and you start wondering which way is the right way :)
This was taken close to the middle of the day during a little scout around the campsite.

Galactic Gateway

a view worth freezing my balls off for.

8 shot panorama, each shot in the portrait orientation, alittle light painting on the snow and rocks to bring out some detail.
