The weather forecast was for a huge dump of snow to come through during the night and settle at low elevation. That meant I could try and get some snow shots on the Thredbo River, so I went out and scouted the location I wanted to shoot at that afternoon. I had to push my way through 40 metres of very tall and tight bush to get to the spot I was thinking of, once I got there I new it was the spot so I headed home. The storm had gone through overnight and I got back to the 40 metres of bush section before dawn only to find that due to the amount of snow that the bushes where leaning over and it was impossible for me to push through them. So it was act like a wombat and crawl my way through which ended up being relatively easy, although I got a lot of snow on top of me. I got to the spot and quickly put on the fly fishing waders and got out into the Thredbo River. Now the tricky part here is not to slip on the rocks under the water, which helps to keep the very expensive camera gear dry and not destroyed. I stayed photographing in the river for over an hour. With this shot I had the tripod fully immersed, plus the exposure was for 20 second and that’s no mean feet when your trying to stop vibration from the water current hitting the tripod legs. Very proud of myself for getting this very technically difficult shot.
