The sun breaks through afternoon mist at the headwall of Mount Buffalo Gorge, Mount Buffalo National Park, Victoria, Australia.
This is another shot from an amazing half hour or so of swirling mist and changing light, and not knowing where to begin in capturing the moment. Some photos can be carefully planned in terms of time of day and time of year and familiarity of place, but this was a case of deciding to explore an area of the mountain I’d never been before. I’d spent hours lower down the mountain photographing waterfalls that were raging after recent rains but I wasn’t excited about any of the images I’d made. On impulse I decided to head up to the top in the car. From there I descended a short distance into the head of the huge Mount Buffalo Gorge where I found cliffs, boulders and trees in a constantly changing mist.
