Photographer's Note

Like many mountain areas, the Australian Alps get covered in wild flowers in the summer. This photo was taken from near Mt Hotham and looks towards Mt Feathertop (1922 m) in the distance. The orange flowers in the foreground are everlastings, and the clumps of white flowers might be rice flowers.

The dead-looking trees are snow gums that were killed by a wild fire in 2004. They are growing back from their bases, but they will take another 20 years to get as high as the original trees. Probably by then there will have been another wild fire that kills them all off.
