Located on the mountain peak 850m above the sea level Mount Irvine is a tiny settlement in the area of Australian Blue Mountains. Cool wet climate and rich basalt soil for millions of years provided perfect environment for the rainforest to grown here. Never before I saw such a magical, thick and absorbing forest. It is so dense that sound sometimes is having difficulty getting through it. A number of times when I was standing at the middle of the road with my tripod taking this photograph I just could not hear a car driving out of the curve 50m behind me.
I took a total of 18 shots to create a tall HDR panorama (2 columns of 3 bracketed sets of -2/0/+2EV). This is a tone-mapped HDR of approximately 60% of the resulting panorama.
