INTRODUCTION

cold frosty winter morning at Yarra Glen, Victoria – Australia. From an advantage point along the Skyline Road, we could see vast fog-covered plains and mountain ranges. Skyline Road has been a favourite location for our photography adventures over the years with wintertime being the best time of the year to visit!  We also travelled along Wise Road later in the morning on our way back home where I managed to capture another mystical image. It was a lovely early morning photography adventure and once again our spirits lifted by spending time with nature.
