Trailing edge of a strong rain band passing through sw w.a on Sunday night, caught by just enough of the following cold pool to produce a very light dusting on Bluff Knoll.

Sad when the only snow reports are from WA, though. Albany gets far more fronts than it should for its mediocre latitude. You guys need to get rid of Perth's garbage by building a big landfill on the top of the Stirling Ranges wink

For the past 6 weeks or so, the fronts approaching Oz have been peaking over WA, before pushing into the interior and forming troughs and rain bands that then have descended into the south-east. We've been getting the dregs of these cold fronts and have struggled to receive much cold air.
It's been a tough snow season in the alps, just plodding along with generally small top ups to keep it afloat. In that respect, it's done pretty well to survive this long.

Better still, we need to drag Canada to below Australia. smile

Yes OR.

Frequency of light dustings has been good this year - but getting a strong front with plenty of trailing moisture elusive...and time must be running out.

Looking north east along the summit ridge of Bluff Knoll Wednesday 28th, 6.30am.
Ground temps not a problem - at least not in the early part of the morning.

Indeed SB! That is an excellent pic! It not only captures the snowfall but also the wonderful views from BK across the Stirlings and out over the great southern land/farmscape.

Many thanks for posting it. Snow starved we are all!

Not a bad cover either for BK - thin but consistent. Is that rime on the shrub?

Yes a really well composed photo. As you say Mr O.R. the flat lands beyond are a very interesting contrast. Looks green as well smile

The only issue is something I have to correct myself on almost every time - crooked horizon grin

I'm so bad that I now remind myself to look at the horizon EVERY time I shoot - I still bugger it up though sometimes. I'm a shocker at it grin

It's a really lovely photo to look at and look at again. smile The effort taken to get that photo is MOST impressive and SB has done that a number of times. Obviously not as lazy as me grin

Crooked, yeah, but imagine the gale up there, especially near that escarpment edge. One of my now distant memories is how ferocious the gale was up that south facing incline at the top of BK.

All is forgiven SB! You just keep snapping away. smile

Thanks to WZ forum - especially OR and DaveM - your interest and encouragement always keeps me going....perhaps one leg is a little shorter than the other - but dont think I'll go there. I'd hope it'd pass for the natural curvature of the earth

No worries SB - as I said, I always do that myself, I spend half my photo prep time trying to line it up but clearly my eyes are rubbish smile

We love hearing about over there smile

Haha, reckon you're close enough to the pole down there to pick up a bit of curvature. Good try! wink

I was wondering how you managed to get up BK so often; now I know your secret: just lead with the short leg going up; reverse that going down. laugh
