From the artist

A presence or spirituality lies in the rolling hills and jutting mountains of the Cradle Mountain / Lake St Clair National Park. Its utter irregularity and volatility which is elemental and uncontrolled, epitomises nature as blistering winds, freezing temperature and snow formed the back drop for one fleeting moment, as the clouds briefly parted, revealing the morning sun.
