True Colours - Capertee Valley , Garden of Stone - The HDR Experience by 


Thank You For dropping in and viewing my latest work, for those who *Favourite I am Honoured*

Surrounded by the wonders of World Heritage listed wilderness, the Capertee valley is the world’s second largest canyon. Capertee is 1 kilometre longer than the Grand Canyon, but not quite as deep.

Sandstone cliffs dominate the escarpment, drawing down into a deep chasm carved into the environment over millions of years. With tranquil vistas and serene mountain landscapes the Capertee Valley is abundant in flora and wildlife. Under the sandstone layer stretches an enormous layer of coal and oil shale.

Rising majestically out of the valley floor is a monolith in size and spectacle. The impressive peak, Pantoney’s Crown, beckons the keen walker to climb its summit. From the top a 360° panorama, of the dramatic and breathtaking valley. The Capertee valley is located in The Gardens Of Stone National Park

The Blue Mountains if a World Heritage Area , a few hours by road west of Sydney and are a must when visiting Sydney.

Equipment: Nikon D300,
Technique: GET UP WAY TOO EARLY take 5 bracketted images then run it through Photomatix Pro. Then tidy up image lightly in Capture NX.!

    Oh my, this is wonderful Philip. The somewhat muted colours make it all the more attractive.
