The journey

The journey

It looks like training for some crazy adventure race, but no, its actually an 'how can I get up to the top of this mountain range as fast as possible and back down again to photograph at sunset'. It's really good to fully explore an area, and get a 'feel' for the surrounds so that it can be translated into the scene. Here I 4WD, biked & then walked through thigh deep snow to get to the top of the range at 1655m as fast as possible. The views were spectacular, and it was unreal up there, completely different form the Nelson Bays area, with vast expanses of rolling openness and endless desert like browns in the valleys.
