Ken says “To really know a region you have to spend time absorbing its mood until you begin to relate to its mysterious and ancient rhythms”, says Ken. “I often have to return to a location again and again until I’ve captured the true spirit of the place. In that time spent waiting for the right moment, I have the opportunity to truly connect with the land. It’s amazing what you can learn about a place by just sitting in silence there. Mist lingers in the high country forest of Alpine National Park. Every feature of these distinctive snow gums, from their contoured limbs to their brash streaks of colour, speaks character. These trees have stood firm against wind, rain and snow. But one thing is harder to withstand. Since this photo was taken, vast fires have swept through the area. It will take a long time to recreate some of these special scenes. The tragedy is that so much of the destruction could have been prevented. If the high country cattlemen hadn’t been locked out of these areas – The very areas they once made legendary, the forests would be far better cared for than today. In many cases, national parks authorities simply do not have sufficient resources to manage such huge swathes of land. I hope that good sense will once again prevail. I am one of many people fighting for more open use of national parks so that they can be managed more effectively in the future.”
