Beneath the Surface by Alistair Wilson


Small (15.5" x 23.2")

Available to buy on…

Another shot from the shoot around Mount Donna Buang on the 3rd of June 2010. I loved the way the polariser cut the reflections of the surface and the rocks below the water level become a lot more visible to the camera’s eyes. Hints of light were starting to break through and sit themselves neatly on the creek’s surface..

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..

    One of the best of this kind of shot I’ve seen Alistair. This is turning out to be an amazing representation of the area.

  • Thanks mate, glad I got so many good ones in one morning. Sometimes I’ll drive two hours and not get anything!
