The photos may not necessarily be my best ones, but they reflect some of the highlights of the year for me.
The trigger for this exercise came from reading of Jim Goldstein's yearly collection of people's 'Best of ...." photo project (read about it here), and it was quite difficult to whittle it down to just 10 images. As such, there are a few that I would have liked to include, but was unable to.
|Arriving at Magdalen Hut - March 2015|
I chose this image of Julia arriving at Magdalen Hut purely for the memories of a fun weekend away together.
|Approaching Woolshed Creek Hut - April 2015|
This was our first overnight tramp alone with our kids, making it a special trip. This is the view down to the hut, located next to the creek. Once they spied the hut, the kids were very excited!
|Big Hill Range, from Staces Hill - August 2015|
I have fond memories of this day, mostly because it opened my eyes to the splendour of this part of the country having not tramped in the area before.
|Lake Emma on a perfectly calm day - September 2015|
Another family day out, and we were treated to a stunning day. It's not often calm through here, we were truly blessed.
|Tramping along the ridge, Broken Hill - September 2015|
Another really fun day out, memorable partly due to the fact that it seemed to be raining everywhere round us but we stayed dry!
|Cameron Valley - October 2015|
The absolute highlight of the year was our overnight tramp up the Cameron Valley. A truly spectacular place. The hut is nestled at the foot of the mountains just left of centre behind the moraines.
|Dawn in the Cameron Valley - October 2015|
What a way to start the day! - first light hitting the tops of the Arrowsmith Range, while the moon sets behind it.
