Thank you every one for your comments, much appreciated.

Carloyn....Mt Stirling is the next mountain next to Mt Buller, which is one of Vic's most popular ski fields,With Masfield being its closest town.

This photo was taken from "Craigs Hut" which was originaly built for the filming of "The Man from Snowy River" made back in the 80's. The day I visited we got rained in and we were trapped in the hut until it cleared. We couldnt see past the low lying cloud that had moved in. This shot was taken as the mist was rising. I didnt get the type of landscape shots I had set out for but was rewarded with some great moody mist shots!

I see you are from the land of OZ too! I also had a look through your gallery. You have some wonderful shots, but I think your sunsets are just awesome. Keep up the great work!
