Dead Horse Gap,Kosciuszko National Park, NSW, Australia – Title: Weaving through the mist – Code: SN12

The Story

This shot was taken at the tree line near South Ramshead, its quite an interesting story on how I captured this image. About 4 years before I took this shot, I was passing through heading for Mt Kosciuszko when from about 200 metres away I looked at these cluster of trees and said to my self there a shot in there. It was weird because I had this strong need to go over to it, but time was against me and on I pushed. Then two years later I was passing the spot again at the end of a 7 day, Kiandra to Dead Horse Gap, when I looked over again at these trees and once again was strongly drawn to them, but once again, there wasn’t time.

The weather was also very bad so I decide to camp in the tree line and wait till morning to see how my back was and see if the weather had improved. During dinner that night I suddenly remembered that I was close to that cluster of snow gums, so I thought if my back is still bad then I’ll call off the trip but at least go and check out the cluster of snow gums

Once I got to the spot that buzzy adrenalin high hit me, I get it when I know I’ve got something really amazing, the brain just went into overdrive and I went into that beautiful shooting zone. I‘d completely forgotten about my back and came away with some extraordinary snow gum imagery. This whole episode made me realize that you have to listen to your instincts for there generally not wrong.
