Snowy ride on the West Coast Road (Highway 73)

Photos were taken through my windscreen on 11th September (spring) 2015 , after a top-up fall of snow down to 450 metres the previous day.  This section is from the outskirts of  Springfield to the Porters Ski Field turn off.  The West Coast Road is sometimes referred to as the Great Alpine Highway, or the Inland Scenic Route.
