How do Crimson Rosella’s survive the hash alpine conditions?
What did Noel Coward once say “Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid day sun” I wonder what he would think about a landscape photographer in a snow storm? Why go out in bad weather you may ask. Simple with the constantly changing weather you get varying light and clouds which can make the mood of a photo from poor to excellent. You just have to be mindful of the risks and be prepared for anything.
Cross country skiing is one of the things I really enjoy, I guess it is just the sense of moving fast without having to walk or run. On this occasion I was in the back country near Falls Creek (In the Australian Alps) I was caught in a blizzard for a half a day. It would appear that I was not alone as I found a little Crimson Rosella trying to avoid the storm as well. This birds toughness against the elements impressed me. But I guess he does not have a warm ski lodge to go home to.
