Australian alpine during spring, at the start of the Thredbo river.
I had spent the night in a tent at a lookout with a view over the fabulous Australian Alps (including Mt. Kosciusko). Arriving in the middle of the night, I quickly set up the tent, escaping the massive cloud of mosquitoes that happened to be there. In the morning after a good sleep, I awoke to a great view.
Down the road a ways, I came across this scene, a picture-perfect arrangement of a snow gum, alpine flora and a pristine alpine creek.
