Diamond in the sky! by Steve Chapple

Currently unavailable for purchase

Late afternoon, Lyrup flats between Renmark and Berri in the Riverland of South Australia.

Afternoon shots whilst waiting for the sun to go down for a night time shoot. The clouds moved apart and left this diamond like section reflecting nicely on the still backwaters.

Again a visit to one of my favourite places where these huge River gums stand defiant against nature, dead but not finished…….

Canon 400D 18-55 lens, CIR Polarising filter.

Three shot panoramic stitch in CS3 and converted to B&W in the same program.
