You Raise Me Up - Capertee Valley,West Of Sydney Australia - The HDR Experience by 


Sometimes when you get up before the birds for photography , you ask why then you get a view like this and you know why.

The Capertee valley is the world’s second largest canyon. Capertee is 1 kilometre longer than the Grand Canyon, but not quite as deep.

Just 2 km south of town, on the Mudgee Rd, is Pearsons Lookout. It furnishes outstanding views of the Capertree Valley to the east. Nearly 30 km across it is the largest enclosed valley in Australia. Rising dramatically from the valley floor is Pantoneys Crown, a column-like, flat-topped mountain, named after William Pantoney, one of the members of the first European expedition through the area – that of John Blackman in 1821.

Technique: HDR 5 Bracketted Exposures , tonemapped in Photomatix 4.1

Equipment: Nikon D300 Nikon 18-200mm, Manfrotto Tripod

    Excellent shot Philip. I appreciate how widely you travel to get the great shot and the words that accompany the photo are always interesting – if I had a car I’d love to get out and travel to many of the places you have been with your camera.
