When I finished shooting Little River at the Cathedral Ranges State Park, time was getting on. I wanted to be on location somewhere at sunset (even though I knew the sun would not be visible behind those dull, overcast clouds), and a quick look at my map suggested Lake Eildon might be within reach.

I arrived on location as the light was beginning to dim overhead, and was pleased to see the bare, dead trees standing tall in the still water, their reflections seemingly perfect… I was immediately reminded of my recent trip down to Tenby Point.

I thought this piece of driftwood lying on the interestingly textured shoreline provided a great focal point to anchor the surrounding landscape. I found that I couldn’t quite the exposure right during post-processing, even after HDR processing, so the Orton Effect has been applied to lighten up the image without losing too much detail.
