I was lucky enough today to have the time to get back out to this magic place, and just at the right time too when all the leaves have turned but not yet fallen from the trees. The last time I went there (exactly a month earlier) they were replacing the bridges between the islands so I couldn’t get to the best spot, and even though they are still working on the bridges, I did what any good photographer would do and jumped the barriers anyway.
Taken at the Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens, Dandenong Ranges NP, Victoria.
Shot with a Nikon D200, 12-24mm lens at 20mm, F/16, 100 ISO. 7 shot HDR. Tone mapped in Photomatix, other adjustments in Photoshop.
