Break On Through... - Black Spur, Victoria, Australia by 

Late afternoon light bursts through the mountain ash and mist on the Black Spur road between Healesville and Marysville on the way home from a recent mid-week shoot with friend and fellow bubbler Nick Skinner. Capturing the moment became paramount when we saw the light breaking through the trees, which meant standing on the narrow strip of road between the lines and the steel barrier with our tripods in the grass and avoiding getting hit by cars.

Black Spur, Yarra Ranges National Park, Victoria, Australia.

    Wow…magical light and atmosphere, Sean. Terrific capture.

  • Thanks mate,
    This shot was a bit of an afterthought as Nick and I cruised down the black spur road from Marysville and saw the light through the trees. We had traffic tearing past literally inches from our backs while capturing this.

    I really think the Yarra Ranges is your kind of place.
