Waste Point

Kosciusko National Park.

Waste Point is just before the gates to the National Park going up the road to Perisher Valley. You turn off a couple of kilometers after the Thredbo River crossing. This morning was the coldest morning all winter I reckon. Someone later said it got to minus eight Celsius last night. There was frost everywhere.

There have been a few big bush-fires lately so the bush is pretty burnt out and there is not a lot of undergrowth and there are a lot of dead trees.

There was frost everywhere on the ground and gave me lots of chances to find some interesting textures.

icy soil
Frozen water in the soil

Frozen icicles were coming up out of the sand at the edge of the lake. It must have been all the moisture in the sand freezing into columns of crystal ice. It looked really weird.

And some water in the lake which seemed to extend into a gaussian infinity.
