Illuminated by Maxwell Campbell

Clifton Springs along the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria.

Taken in the dark of night. The near full moon peeping through clouds from behind, and low cloud cover suppressing the city lights in the distance combining with a long exposure to “illuminate” the awesome Jetty ruins of Clifton Springs.

    Stunning. Well done. …and no filter used?

  • Thanks very much Olafur. No filter, was way to dark. The colours came from the city lights which were suppressed by the thick low cloud. We also had to through some torch light on the stumps to get focus, and aided by the full moon from behind. Everything just came together. Glad you like it mate. :-)
