As is the case with many of my shots there is a considerable time gap between finding a good location for an image and shooting it. I found this spot in March 2007 on an overcast day completely unsuitable for photography. I finally returned in November 2007 to capture the shot I had envisaged all those months before. On this occasion the light surpassed my expectations with the results being worth the wait. With the number of visitors and photographers that visit not only Wilsons Promontory but Pillar Point and Squeaky Beach in particular it amazes me that I have never seen this composition before. Shot on Velvia with a Canon EOS30.
My most popular rb shot, 101st on the all time most popular list (when it existed), 3 sales, 421 comments, 265 fav’s and 12,469 views to date (9/8/11).
Originally scanned with a Nikon scanner, I upgraded this to a drum scan of the same transparency using a Linotype HELL3400 (worth $300,000). The quality difference is breathtaking.
This shot along with 107 others is available in my book The Prom – Wilsons Promontory National Park, Victoria, Australia
