If you’ve spent time at this location you can understand why time is against this amazing place, even the viewing platform will slide away into the ocean and when you head down to Gibson Steps you can see how some of it is collapsing already.
Now I can understand why they have signs warning people to keep to the path but as a landscape photographer the desire to find a unique composition can be overpowering and you can’t but help to break the rules. Would you believe that one of the workers stationed at the car park called us scum several times. Now perhaps we deserved a slap on the wrist but the abusive behaviour and the vicious and unwarranted “scum” comment was talking it way too far. What do you think?
Presenting an old image from my collection which I try to reprocess again and again as my processing skills develop. I never felt I could do justice to the actual scene but I think I am getting there each time and I feel this is the best effort yet.
It was cold, it was windy and it had been raining for many hours till then. The sun just peeked ot for a short time to form these magic golden rays.The wind and rain and sun together created a fantastic atmosphere and mist/fog can be seen over the apostles.
This is a handblended image of 2 exposures from a set of five bracketed images.
Love the place and the great atmosphere.
Enjoy the Light.
Painted Hills, Oregon + Great Ocean Road, Victoria Some random points about this image: – It is a composite – The landscape was taken as a night shot with the EXIF settings you see but pre-dawn with far fewer stars which were a random assortment and not the milky way. – The milky way night sky you see is from the Southern hemisphere where I believe we get a much better deal in terms of milky way visibility! – The merge is a composite that uses many masking techniques (some of which are complex but unfortunately none of which I have made a video out of to sell!) All of this makes it ‘unreal’ as the title suggests but perhaps quite a pretty picture? I’ll leave that for you to decide !
