I spend a lot of time backcountry skiing in this area with friends so don’t usually have the time to photograph. This is a great place close to Thredbo resort where you can ski untracked snow while the resort is all chopped up. As it faces south, is protected from the south west winds by big peaks and is in a hollow the temperatures here stay cold which keeps the snow light, dry and deep. We usually have all this great snow to ourselves.

I’ve always thought the dead snowgums with their shadows on the snow and the snow contours in the creek would make for a great black and white image. On this occasion I found a nice campsite amongst the snowgums and skied down to the creek to shoot in the early morning.
