Australia Post has warned us that Christmas mail will probably take longer to be delivered than we are used to so, if you are considering a 2021 Snowy Mountains Calendar as a gift now would be a good time to buy. Go to https://davidbigwoodpublishing.blog/shop/calendars/wall-calendars/ to see details.
Another sale through Alamy, the on-line photo library. This image is available as fine art prints through shop/photographic-prints>/snowy-mountains-australia/ Look for prints 40, 41 and 97.
If you love the mountains you might be interested in this article that was published in the Australia and New Zealand magazine in the UK some time ago. I hadn’t moved to the mountains then but had visited them in winter and summer for decades. Now they are my home and have been for ten years. As a photographer I am overwhelmed at the beauty of this place and my files are filled with images of its ever-changing scenery.
I love using my photographs to promote the area among my friends and family. This year I have branched out by publishing a wall calendar of the Snowy Mountains for 2021 and have been pleasantly surprised with the sales which shows there are many who, like me, believe this part of Australia is worth supporting.
To see details of the calendar, go to https://davidbigwoodpublishing.blog/shop/calendars/wall-calendars/ and to read the article the start of which is below, go to https://davidbigwoodpublishing.blog/writing/the-home-of-the-man-from-snowy-river/
“As we round the bend and catch the first sight of Lake Jindabyne it feels as if we are coming home. Below us the hilltops that used to surround the old town of Jindabyne poke through the waters as islands. Beyond, the main range of the Australian Alps stands as a sturdy backdrop against the deep blue of a cloudless sky.”

I have just received my initial order of posters and have to report that I am delighted with the results. I am sure you will feel the same when you see one of my posters on your wall.
I was asked to identify the wildflowers on my new poster so here is the best I could do. Note, I am not a botanist and the resources I have to ssist in identification are not all that helpful so I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the result. I hope it helps.
Granite buttercups Shaggy Pea Golden everlasting
? Waxy bluebell Eyebright
Billy buttons Californian poppy (introduced) Golden everlasting
Alpine bottlebrush Muellers Snow gentian Seed head of Goat’s beard
Silver ewartia Snow daisies ?
I have updated my Poster page (https://davidbigwoodpublishing.blog/shop/%20posters/) and due in stock next week is this poster of some of the wildflowers that will soon be carpeting the alpine meadows as the snow melts. Might be a gift idea.
Australia Post is doing its best under difficult circumstances but it will only get busier as on-line orders increase with the approach of Christmas so do be prepared for longer delivery times than normal.
Talking of gift ideas, as well as the posters, there are many in my on-line shop including photographic prints, e-books, greeting cards and, of course, my calendars for 2021 both wall and desk. https://davidbigwoodpublishing.blog/shop/
