I took this photograph while on a 5-day horse trek in Australia’s mountainous south-east. Our route followed old gold mining and cattle grazing trails through some of the state of Victoria’s most spectacular alpine landscapes. We rode through densely forested mountain valleys, up steep ridgelines, across wide open highplains and made a traverse of Mount Bogong, Victoria’s tallest mountain.
