Photographer's Note

The snow gum is a variety of eucalypt that helps give Australia's snow country a very different look to high country elsewhere in the would. They land up with multiple twisted trunks due to winds and the weight of snow. They have fascinating patterns in the smooth bark - here visible below the snow on the larger tree.The foliage is a greeny-grey colour.
This photo was taken at a spot delightfully named "Dead Horse Gap" in Kosciuszko national park (not Kosciusko as spelt in another folder on TE). The spelling was changed a few years ago to match the correct name of the Polish explorer after whom the park is named.
Scanned from a negative.
