    As host of the Alpine Australia group it seems every 2nd shot is cradle from Dove Lake so to be honest I’m pretty over this particular vista. So to see a shot of this that still made me go wow and reach for the fav button is amazing. Truly superb Ben, the light and comp is truly superb, glorious.

  • Thanks Travis, appreciate the comment mate.
