~ On top of the world ~ Down Under ~ by 


Taken on the walkway leading up to the highest peak in Australia: Mt Kosciuszko…

Mt Koscuiszko is part of The Snowy Mountain ranges, in the southern part of New South Wales.

This photo was taken in January 2010, during our summer… Hence the absence of snow. You can see some snow on the right side of the photo, atop of the hill, which was dusted with red dirt.

I am not a fit person – far from it – and there were people far older and far younger than I who walked this path. The return [walking] trip is 13kms and is well worth the effort ~ for the view, if nothing else.

Camera: Kodak Z650

I take photos. I write. I sing & dance. Ok, I DON’T sing & dance. Not in public, anyway; & usually 2 my own beat. But I have fun, & that makes life a little more tolerable -for me. Maybe not 4 my kids. But, hey, if they can’t laugh at their mum then they’re probably the only ones who aren’t. So turn up the music & let’s boogie! (Do they still boogie these days? Gosh, I’m getting old. Best be careful not 2 throw a hip while throwing a leg!)

    Very nice pic there Donna. I have been wanting to get to Kosciuszko in the Summer months myself for a while now. I went there about 13 years ago in January and it was minus 20 at the peak with the wind chill factor. Maybe next year….Will need to make sure I have extra batteries for my camera though :)

  • It was a great walk. I’d like to go again – but a bit fitter next time.

    It was the first time I had ever seen or touched snow… as ‘pitiful’ as it looks in the photo! :D

    Great image! Got to get up there myself in the summer! I’m a skier so most of my trips up there are in the winter!

  • I’ll look forward to the photos. :)

    This was the closest I’ve ever been to snow. :)

    Thank you, David.
