The Story

Michael Seamans Hut 7649Seamans Hut is a very special hut to me, it was built after two adventurous backcountry skiers lost their lives to the elements, it was funded and built by the families of the two skiers.

This shot was taken pre dawn on a back country trip where I was camping there for 5 days, it was a very still morning and there is nothing like experiencing the dawn alone in this incredible snowscape. Cold!, just my fingers occasionally, when having to manipulate the equipment, otherwise totally warm.

I love Seamans hut because it has protected me many a time whilst venturing into the highest parts of the Kosciuszko National Park. I’ve been protected from blizzards and torrential rain, I’ve been warmed up from the cold winter and cooled from the suns heat. Seamans hut stands as a beacon of strength and protection.
