Snow Gums of Hill End NSW Australia by 

I always love to capture these white snow gums at Hill End, tucked up high on the Bald Hill Lookout Road. You need to wait for even light and we drove past a few times over the long weekend taking a peek to see if the light was right. During our visit to the rifle range on the Sunday to watch the Muzzle Loaders in action I was pleased when the sun hid behind a cloud and presented me with this light, The shooters must have thought I had gone made because one moment I was following them with my camera doing my own shooting and then I was running into the bush to capture this image. Never mind, we all agreed we all had to be crazy to be doing what we were doing … and having fun along the way.

Hill End is located in the Central Western area of NSW just a short drive from Mudgee or Bathurst. Once a gold mining area, today it is under the protection of the National Parks and preserved for all of us to enjoy.

Taken with the Nikon D700, 28-300 mm lens, hand held, lighting supplied with the compliments of the ‘man above’ – thank you.

    I’m just waiting for a chance at snow gums with mist … may be waiting a while!!! This is magic Bev … they certainly came up well.

  • Thanks Rosalie … they are good in the rain too but mist would be magic. I tried a few times over the weekend to get them right but this was the best … just had to wait for the sun to disappear behind a cloud otherwise the light is too dappled♥

    Gorgeous atmosphere you’ve caught! and yes the best light to set them off!!
    Love the white twisted one in the middle that’s like a shot of lightening! =}

    PS I wonder if the artist Lynda Robinson could paint this in pastles – she is the queen of white!

  • Thanks sweetie for the comment and favourite … no doubt many artists have painted these gums … they would inspire me to paint if I thought I could. Lynda would be most welcome to use this image as a basis for a canvas if she thought it appropriate … would be great to see her interpretation♥
