Golden light

On Sunday afternoon, we had a relaxing picnic in Parkerville across the road from the tavern.  There was a brook there where the kids (and some adults) got their feet wet!  With sounds of a tight funk band drifting over to us, it was one glorious afternoon.

Unfortunately I didn’t bring a tripod along, but managed to take some slower shutter speed shots by resting the camera on the bridge there.  Here’s a shot of the brook.  I loved the sunlight on that day, and the clear blue sky reflecting off the water.  Combined with some of the muddy soil around, it made the water look golden.

I didn’t have much time to play around with this image – I wish I had brought my GND along, and I may have gone overboard with the sharpening, but I’m liking the direction this image is going…

Wyadup Rocks

Our family went down south during the school holidays. It was definitely worth it to get away from the city, the house and day to day chores.

I was so excited to get down south this trip as I have been recently inspired by many WA landscape photographers. I’ve bought the Cokin Z-Pro Graduated Neutral Density kit, had my tripod, and was ready for some action!

The only place I got to in the end was Wyadup Rocks. I hadn’t been there before, but when I got there, I was totally inspired by the rocks, the beach and the landscape. Unfortunately, it started to rain the first time we got there, so I had to make a second trip.

I’ve only had time to process one panorama so far. Here it is! I hope to learn a few more tricks and tips at Christian Fletcher’s workshop next week, so I’ll probably revisit this.
