Cheers Rich,

I can't help but smile when you talk about skiing-in to a photo-shoot. Our situations are so very different...... I don't think it's snowed in the Pilbara region of Western Australia for a million years :)

I have a place down in Tasmania....... things are a bit different down there though :)

This is beautiful Richard. I have just read through your methodology for getting photos like this. Difficult - especially if, like the majority of us, there is ambient light. You are so lucky to be able to get out into the wilds.

Greetings, Amelia
