True Colours - Capertee Valley, Australia - The HDR Experience

Philip Johnson

Newport Beach, Australia

Artist's Description

BEST VIEWED LARGER

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
