Drifting Away - Narrabeen Lakes, Sydney Australia - The HDR Experience by 


This is my neighbourhood , yes i know it’s hard but someone has to live here, I was shooting at Narrabeen lake and two fisherman, came by to launch their canoes, one launched his canoe and got occupied with his fishing gear, i noticed his canoe drifting away …. should i tell him …. no it worked for this shot and reflection.

He was a bit embarrassed when he had to send his mate out to pull it back in

Narrabeen Lakes is located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, its a place of solitude,light and reflections. A great place to greet the day.
