On the last weekend of May 2000, when we were living in Canberra, I was watching the radar and Thredbo site while I was at work and there was big snow coming. So we rang the cat sitter (only had 1 cat then!) and the Thredbo YHA and after work Friday we took off for the snow!
It turned out to be one of the biggest dumps ever, over 50cm in 2 days and follow up snow. The journey there was hair raising with a speeding driver smashing into an NRMA truck while the guy was fitting chains to a car just in front of us – luckily we had pulled over to fit OUR chains – the lady and the NRMA man had to jump for their lives.
We could not leave until the Tuesday and had to miss 2 days work (we were really sad at that!).
These shots were taken by my partner Warwick on the Saturday morning (I was abed with a migraine) with a small point and shoot camera, and I only have these low res scans left, I can’t find the prints or negs. But it was so spectacular and it is that time of the year so I thought I’d try this montage effect.
