Jamison Valley The Blue Mountains Under a Dark Stormy Sky HDR

High dynamic range (HDR) images enable photographers to record a greater range of tonal detail than a given camera could capture in a single photo

This allows the photographer to combine a series of bracketed exposures into a single image which encompasses the tonal detail of the entire series.

The human eye can actually perceive a greater dynamic range than is ordinarily possible with a camera, our eyes can see over a range of nearly 24 f-stops.

I use HDR to extract the detail in the shadows and highlights and try and capture the image as I see it, as I know my cameras tonal range I can meter the scene and calculate the range and then set my exposure accordingly and then shoot the image.

The Jamison Valley stretches north-south from just outside of Katoomba to Coxs River; in this direction it is approximately twelve kilometres long. From west to east, it stretches from Narrow Neck Plateau to Kings Tableland, making it approximately ten kilometres wide. Like the entire Sydney and Blue Mountains region, the valley is a sandstone area, characterised by steep sandstone cliffs. Deeper into the soil there is a layer of shale, which is softer than the sandstone. As this layer of shale was eroded by the watercourses, it collapsed and brought the sandstone down with it, creating the characteristic sandstone valleys and canyons of the Blue Mountains, of which the Jamison Valley is one.
The valley is densely forested, with eucalypt forest over most of its expanse and occasional pockets of semi-rainforest in gullies, where water is concentrated. The northern escarpment is deeply serrated, having been carved up by watercourses over millions of years. Watercourses include Jamison Creek, Valley of the Waters Creek, Gordons Creek, Leura Falls Creek, Kedumba River and Causeway Creek. There are also numerous waterfalls, including Wentworth Falls, Empress Falls, Vera Falls, Gordon Falls, Leura Falls and Katoomba Falls.
The only mountain in the valley is Mount Solitary, which sprawls across the centre of the valley from west to east. It is joined to Narrow Neck Plateau by a low ridge which is also the site of the Ruined Castle, a rock formation that is popular with bushwalkers. Immediately east of Mount Solitary is a property called Kedumba Farm, which is no longer worked as a farm.
South of Mount Solitary, the valley sprawls down to Coxs River and Lake Burragorang, the lake that was created when Warragamba Dam was built. There is a three-kilometre prohibited area around the river and lake to protect Sydney’s water supply. Around this area there is a high-tension power line that crosses the valley from east to west; it is followed by a series of service roads that provide access to the powerline and to the area, although much of it is in the prohibited area. These service roads make it possible to do a trek taking in the whole valley, but it is necessary to get permission from Sydney Water to go through the prohibited area. The Katoomba and Jamison topographic maps are essential for any of these walks.
