Captain Cook Creek, Bruny Island by 

Down for the weekend at Bruny and went for a walk in the late afternoon with the sun streaming from the left, catching this group of gum trees, and the creek, named after Captain James Cook who landed here a couple of years back (26th January, 1777), which sits on the edge of Adventure Bay (named after the ship Tobias Furneaux captained – his was the ship accompanying Cook’s on their first voyage when he discovered NSW and eventually got shipwrecked on the Great Barrier Reef).
This photo taken on Sony A900 DSLR with CZ24-70mm f2.8 lens at 55mm, f22 and 1/60th second on ISO 200. No filters but tripod mounted. Processed in ACDSee Pro5.

    Lovely composition and light – nice work.

  • Thanks very much Warren. Have just recently uploaded the full pano of this same shot/lighting, which shows the whole of Adventure Bay. A very pretty spot.

    Beautiful scene, nicely handled, excellent lighting on the trees. Make a nice canvas print I reckon.
    Would look like a painting.

  • Hi Stephen, really appreciate your kind comments mate! Actually we have just ordered a canvas print of the pano version of this same shot for our daughter (it’s one of the latest images on my page with a much broader view of Adventure Bay; the view she sees when driving from her block of land to the beach). It will be interesting to see how much like a painting it looks like, and if good, I may consider doing that for this one (for us this time).
    Cheers Stephen, good hearing from you again.
