Cement Creek, Yarra Ranges National Park, Victoria, Australia.
I would like to start off by thanking Lindsay very much for his company on a new years morning. It was cool, unlike now, and it was well worth the trip. It is a fantastic spot and as usual, from 73 photos shot, I got 6, I was happy with. Wading throught he water, and even having a leech take a meal from me was well worth every minute.
When you said be prepared to get wet, I didn’t think you meant get wet, but then I suppose you did not expect me to fall over 3 times. But as every season photographer knows, protect the camera, which I did. Thankyou very much Lindsay.
This shot was taken at approx 6.00am and with an aperture of f22, required an exposure of 30secs. I normally like to keep exposure to approx 5 secs in this type of situation, however, as the day was going to be bright and sunny, we shot just after sunrise to beat the light which would create a very contrasty scene.
