    Stunning image, John! Look super cold! I really like that dark outline (of rocks/shrubbery???) along the edge of the first ridge, with the slightly less defined one on the furthest one.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Whirligig, the foreground up to the last ridge before the summit are snow gums, the darker areas on the main peak are all exposed rocks. That area is pretty much all above the altitude at which the snow gums can survive. Also there are relatively frequent avalanches/slides down that face due to it’s steepness and the cornice that builds up on the summit. So if any snow gum did get started, it would generally be uprooted in a short time.

    The white cloud behind the tip of the mountain makes it an even more beautiful shot.
