Tell us the story behind your photo:
This photo was taken about 300m from the peak of Mount Kosciusko with a 35mm film camera. We encountered this enormous snow drift and had spent the last hour digging out a little path with a snow shovel. We had to spread apart evenly so that the path would not get destroyed. As I was navigating this snow drift, my eyes were fixated on my feet, making sure I did not put a single step wrong. I paused for a moment and looked up to see all white. The snow had become the sky, and the sky had become the snow. It was one of the most astounding views I had ever seen. I quickly reached for my camera and was able to take this shot. We all managed to cross the snow drift safely.
