The trail along the sharp, craggy spine of the Razorback Ridge is infamous for its awesome 360 degree views right across the Victorian alps, and especially in Winter where the isolation and tranquility really kick in.
Clear skies and calm conditions made for a enjoyable (albeit slow-going) snowshoe out along the ridge towards Mt Feathertop, where I'd been planning to make camp for the night & make the most of shooting a sunset and sunset. However, the very nature of the alpine environment surrounding me meant the weather had other ideas.
In the dark, early hours of the morning a swift change in weather blasted in - a rude awakening. Checking the forecast on my phone showed very little hope for improvement, and rather pointed towards the opposite, indicating deteriorating conditions including stronger winds & squalls and rain - not fun up on an exposed ridge.
It's the only time I've ever decided to pack up camp in the dark and retreat under headlight & GPS tracking, but I'm glad I made the decision to do so as I dodged some really nasty alpine weather. And hence a memorable moment in my landscape shooting career and I can't wait to head back :) - Bernie
