This stunning shot of Sugar Pine Walk in Laurel Hill, NSW was captured by Josh Davis @joshdavis23_. “The last few weeks I've been keeping a close eye on the weather looking for a big snow dump and over the weekend it was looking good, and at 1am on Sunday morning @katebury_, @jrodcaptures and myself started the five hour drive,” says Josh. “Would of been maybe less than 10km to go and the first light was starting and there was not one site of snow, hadn't even looked like it had snowed and we were all sitting in the car dead silent as if we were scared to say the words of "I think we have driven 5hours for no snow". But, as we came around a corner it smacked us right in the face, everything was white and we all felt a sign of relief and the car was back to everyone talking. We maybe spent a little over an hour here before driving five hours back home. For me the 12 hour road trip just to see this place covered in snow was so worth it.” #landscapephotography#australianlandscape#australia#destinationnsw#winterdownunder#snowscape#sugarpinewalk#newsouthwales
It's high time I went on another adventure. I'm putting my Australian travels on hold while I jet off back to India for a bit. In seven days I will fly to Mumbai. But not before a 14hr stop over in Kuala Lumpur. Who's been there before? What should I go and see? Tell me thingggs. <3
This is deceptive 🤨It truly was a freezing cold walk as I rugged up to the max with beanie, gloves,🧣and my new Austrian ski jacket as I took time out from the craziness of getting ready for the next exhibition @galleryofsmallthings . I sometimes feel overwhelmed at what needs to be done but now that I have space in my head to focus on the gallery it’s finally beginning to feel pretty special. I now know I’m on the right path to bigger & better things. So #bringiton#girlboss#timeforachange#dreambig
