The Dandenong Ranges gardens in full autumn colour is still one of my favourite places to be, I guess that it why I live there. Only three days after this shot was taken I went up again with the Toneman and there was no red so only a small window of opportunity to get this shot.
Start this by saying ‘Friggin roadworks!’ Gotta love getting delayed to watch 3 blokes watching 1 bloke driving a shovel……’
Anyway, was planning to get into the blue mountains about 2:30pm so that we could get the boys out of the car and have a run around but still driving around @ 4.30 after 10 hours on the road we just made it to the lookout as the sun was going down. Initially slightly annoyed at missing the last rays on the sisters but that disappointment disappeared when the sky started to light up. The transition from pink to orange was magnificent and if I took another few shots to the right to where the sun was, it was a deeper shade of red. Needless to say the dynamic range was very high and this shot took about three hours to process…
Borrowed the title name from Paul Kelly lyrics. Taken overlooking the big city as a thunderstorm approaches from the North West around 11.00pm last night with tropical humidity yet again. Wasn’t that much lightning but managed to snag a couple of CG’s. This is a two image stich but only used lightning from one, the other was used to get the city closer to the centre of the image with Port Philip Bay visible.
Image taken at the start of a 50km hike along the cliffs of the Great Ocean road from Johanna Beach to the 12 Apostles. Quite a tough section of the track with the peaks and troughs but scenery is magnificent for viewing, not so good for photography as it turns out but a good experience all the same.
