More from the archives. Taken on the same magic trip to the Snowy Mountains as the Dance to the End of Time series.
This shot was taken at Dead Horse Gap in the upper reaches of the Thredbo River at the top of the Kosciusko Mountain Range. This place is aptly named – man it was cold.
It is a beautiful but treacherous pass with weather so quickly changeable that on occasion the wild horses that roam the area get trapped in a snowstorm and freeze.
In full sunlight the colours of these gums are amazing with an almost translucent light blue sheen and deep-red to orange bark stripping off them.
