Waterfalls and Showing Off
Last weekend on Sunday in Harrietville after the last workshop was done and lunch was over, we said good bye to lots of people who were leaving. I met so many people and it was sort of sad to say good bye. Though after all that, it was time to pack up the camera bad and get ready to drive to Bright and through to the road to Mount Buffalo.
I showed you an image of Lady Bath Falls on Tuesday, today I have some more of those images, though these are more of the falls.
I absolutely love this image and I have now made it the wallpaper for my desktop. I keep finding myself minimising everything just so I can look at it. I find the colours stunning. Though it was something I didn’t realise until I saw the images on the computer.
This image is very similar to the previous one, but I like how you can see those gorgeous greens in the bottom. They are obviously rocks, but they are so wonderful. You can see it wasn’t too deep, but it was cold. The colours are so nice and relaxing.
I processed these images in pretty much the same way as I did the water images yesterday. I have just used a single image, though they were all bracketed shots, and I did use one of those, though not the correctly exposed ones. All the images were taken in raw and most of the processing was then done in Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6.
I had to climb over some major rocks to get this shot. I was glad to have the tripod with me, stopped me from falling into the water a few times. It is funny the things we do to get a good image. My friend Teresa, also suggested using the tripod to gauge how deep the water was, that was a brilliant idea.
It looks so peaceful there, and I wish I could say it was. I don’t know if I mentioned the thunder the other day. It was hard to hear anything over the waterfall, but we could hear the rumble of thunder. The sky got darker and we kept looking up. It started spitting just as I was thinking, I’d done enough. We decided to walk up a little higher, just to look, and that is when it came down.
As we walked back to the car it rained continuously. I was glad I had my Tamrac Expedition 7 with me. It has all the water protection I needed and I didn’t need to worry about my gear getting wet. That bag has been fantastic and I am amazed at how much I can carry when it is on my back.
I also have some photos from the show and tell that the Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild held on Saturday night. There was some wonderful work shown. I didn’t know how much of it was done, but it was great to see it.
I took so many photos, so it was hard to choose a few, but I have put some together in a gallery for you.
I hope you enjoy them. I will try and put more up on my facebook page, but it will take a few days.
