I can honestly say that photographing this morning on the 3rd of June 2010 was one of the most memorable sessions I’ve ever had and the light conditions were so spectacular that I had never seen them without having a camera handy (so not in the past 2-3 years!) I spent the morning with a mate driving around the Yarra Ranges and was up at 5am for a long drive up to the top of Mount Donna Buang, Victoria, Australia. I’m certain there will be a few more uploads from this morning coming up on redbubble…

Photography for me is an outlet, a way I can express myself through images rather than words. I look at the subjects I shoot from every possible angle that I can imagine and with the right light, the vision in my head becomes a reality. My passion for it began after high school and over the past several years it has become my release, my way of seeing from a different perspective..

    Sweet…and well done HDR too, it looks great, not the overdone effect so often seen…
    Ya gotta get up early for the best shots!

  • Thankyou, yeah over the past 6 months or so I really try to refrane from using it I feel like im cheating but sometimes I think it can work quite well when it’s used sparingly and processed to just bring out the right details and not too much out of the shadows. Thanks for the comment

    Oh, wow.. This is beautiful. There’s something alluring about it.
    And for some reason I think it could be either the beginning or the end of a horror movie.
    Great capture!

  • Thanks Kirstine, thanks for your comments. I saw a canadian zombie movie once that was in a forest like this one.. glad i didn’t see any walking around yesterday :)
