Photographer's Blog: Wildflowers & Water

Previous Entry < > Next Entry

This collection of work comes from being granted a few days grace over the summer. These were all locations Id visited several times before, but they are favourites of mine and Im sure Ill go back many times yet. The landscape is forever changing and the weather presents an infinite kaleidoscope of possibilities such that upon each return trip familiar scenes can be experienced anew. The allure of that one perfect shot continues to tantalise me.

The primary event was hiking the main range track at Kosciuszko with a view to capturing the summer wildflowers. Although Ive been exploring the park every year for many years, Id completely forgotten about the Sentinel area and how beautiful it is. Gearing up at Charlottes Pass I did the circuit via the summit in a little less than 24 hours, walking through the dark to maximise sunset and dawn light. Although I took a tent I didnt bother using it, just flopped down on the grass and got a couple of hours rest. I had issues with wind, ever the landscape photographers bane, but managed to work around the problem and ultimately came away feeling renewed by the alpine experience.

Id already invested quite few days into Glasshouse Rocks on previous trips, so finally getting some dramatic light was very pleasing. Its a tricky subject to shoot. Standing there you want to get right up close to the rocks, and indeed that is possible if the tide is out, but I wanted my shot convey something of the surrounding area and show the curve of the little bay. Id already shot it before in morning and evening light and this time was no exception, but it was the dawn that had the impact.

Shooting straight into the sun required some considerable post-production work. Id estimate about 30 hours of effort for that one image after Id worked up several compositions and discarded them in favour of this one, and then recovered all that lovely detail from my bracketed frames. The net result is to me very pleasing, though Im making the Gooandra Homestead image my pick as the best of the trip. I love a good mountain hut shot, and plan to track down many more huts in the future.

I came home via Philip Island and had a good time shooting there despite local bushfires and one crazy storm that blasted me and everyone on the beach with sand so bad it made the scene look like a war-zone. An epic experience Id rather not repeat. Still I came away a couple of shots I like.

On the home front we had a little family vacation and took our 4 year old camping for his first time, which he loved! Mind you when I say camping I mean in a caravan park, not up a mountain somewhere, but baby steps, well get there one day. He also started kinder, which feels like something of milestone. Hell be all grown up soon. Its a bit of a clich, but it feels like time is moving faster somehow.

Not sure where Ill go next. I did have grand plans for far northern QLD, but it depends on time and money. Thanks for reading. All the best.
