Snow Gum, Dead Horse Gap, Snowy Mountains NSW


In the heart of the Snowy Mountains, where winter's icy grip transforms the landscape into a wonderland of snow and frost, there stood a solitary sentinel, a Snow Gum, against the backdrop of Dead Horse Gap. This ancient tree, gnarled and weather-beaten, had witnessed countless seasons come and go, its branches standing tall and defiant in the face of nature's most relentless challenges.

I had heard tales of this remarkable Snow Gum from fellow photographers and adventurers who had ventured into the Snowy Mountains. Its allure lay not only in its age but in the way it had adapted to its harsh alpine environment. Its twisted trunk and silvery bark seemed to defy the very essence of winter, a stark contrast to the pristine white landscape that surrounded it.

One crisp morning, as the first light of dawn painted the mountains in shades of pink and gold, I decided it was time to embark on a photographic journey to capture the essence of this remarkable tree. Bundled up in layers of warm clothing and armed with my trusty camera, I set out on the snow-covered trail that led to Dead Horse Gap.

The hike was challenging, with the crunch of snow beneath my boots and the crisp mountain air stinging my cheeks. As I ascended, the Snow Gum gradually came into view, standing like a stoic sentinel amidst the snow-covered terrain. Its silvery branches created a striking contrast with the winter landscape, and the rising sun cast long, dramatic shadows, enhancing the tree's character.

I spent hours in the bitter cold, capturing the Snow Gum from every conceivable angle. I marveled at its tenacity and the way it seemed to capture the spirit of the Snowy Mountains themselves—rugged, enduring, and beautiful. The intricate details of the bark, the twists and turns of the branches, and the ethereal quality of the snowflakes falling around it all became subjects of my lens.

As the day unfolded, the sky transformed into a canvas of blue, and the Snow Gum took on different personalities with each passing hour. I watched as the warm, midday light bathed the tree, accentuating its silver bark and casting a soft glow on the snow. Later, during the golden hours, the tree's silhouette became a stunning black contrast against the fiery hues of the setting sun.

The experience of photographing this Snow Gum was a deeply moving one. It was more than just capturing an image; it was a connection with nature and a testament to the enduring beauty that the Snowy Mountains held. As the sun dipped below the horizon and the first stars appeared in the darkening sky, I knew I had captured the essence of this ancient Snow Gum, a timeless sentinel in the heart of the Snowy Mountains.

With my camera's memory card filled with images, I began my descent back to civilization, grateful for the opportunity to have witnessed the silent beauty of the Snow Gum and the rugged grandeur of Dead Horse Gap. It was a photographic journey that had not only captured a tree but had also captured a piece of my heart, forever connecting me to the remarkable landscapes of the Snowy Mountains.

    To be honest, we prefer to ship artwork to you as a finished, ready-to-hang artwork (of course, rolled prints work best when ordering from outside Australia). We believe in quality, finished artwork delivered directly to your door and ready-to-hang. That's service. No more finding a framer, wondering if you’re paying too much, painfully choosing from myriad of frame options then waiting weeks for the job to be done. We use only the best quality materials to ensure your artwork will look amazing and last forever!


    We love our Framed Prints. Our stunning Deep Shadow Box Frames (with that sexy spacer between the frame and the print) are just to die for (Frame Measurements - 30mm wide by 40mm deep). The spacer allows the print to sit back from the glass, ensuring it doesn't touch and ruin your print. Offering the best in contemporary framing, your framed print will look AMAZING on your wall. Your print is printed on archival quality papers with archival inks, ensuring your print won’t fade or wrinkle. Your Tom Putt Print comes digitally signed and a small title is added to the left hand corner.

    The sizes on the website are for the OVERALL print size - which includes the frame and the digital matt (a white border is added to the print rather than a traditional matt board). We STRONGLY recommend that your artwork be supplied with special non-reflective ArtGlass or 99% UV Museum Glass which means that you can see the beautiful artwork, not the distracting reflection from normal glass. Choose from either the Raw Oak, White or Black finish to suit the style of your home. 

    * Raw Oak framing suits homes with wooden floor boards and Scandinavian style of furniture.

    * White framing suits Hamptons style of design, giving that light, beach feel.

    * Black framing suits a darken print and black and white images

    Forget what you know about canvas prints. Ours are COMPLETELY different.  We source our canvas from the best in the world. It is a 100% seeded, cotton canvas - the best quality canvas you can buy. What does this mean for you? It won't fade, wrinkle, or look horrible in years to come. In fact our canvas has a 75 year guarantee!

    Your Canvas Artwork is finished with a stunning Deep Shadow Box Frame in Raw Oak, White or Black (Frame Measurements - 10mm wide by 55mm deep).

    Canvas suits a home where you're looking for that painterly feel to the artwork. The texture in the canvas gives the impression that it is a painting rather than a stunning photograph.

    Canvas also works well to absorb any light opposite the canvas. So if you have windows opposite your artwork, order the canvas so you don't get any reflections.

    What is an Acrylic Print? Think the look of glass but it's not. It looks INCREDIBLE but it's not as heavy or dangerous as glass. It is the same look as many splash backs in kitchens. Your print is between two pieces of acrylic (approx. 5mm thick). The artwork is then hung on the wall using a baton system. Many of our buyers like this finish as it sits close to the wall. This finish suits any modern, light-filled home. Our Acrylic Prints are sure to create that WOW factor.

    What the heck is a Metal Print? I know, I thought the same! A Metal Print is a photographic print heat-adhered to a thin piece of aluminium, approximately 2mm thick. This keeps the print extremely flat. The print is coated with a high gloss vanish to protect it from dust, moisture, finger prints, etc. Your Metal Print has incredible impact and comes finished with a Deep Shadow Box Frame in Raw Oak, White or Black (Frame Measurements - 10mm wide by 55mm deep). This finish suits art that has punchy colours that you want to highlight in a room that has minimal reflections.

    Sometimes the simple things in life are often the best. A rolled print is ready for you to do with it what you want. All our rolled prints come with a white border to help it frame superbly. That means that you don't need to pay extra for matting when framing it. The white border is approx. 70mm wide on each side for artwork under 100cms (longest edge) and 90mm for artwork over 100cms. This white border is included in the total size of the print.
