Artist's Description

At the southern end of Five Mile Beach in the Northern Wilderness area of Wilsons Promontory is a seldom visited gem called Freshwater Lake. The Lake is formed at the bottom end of a huge swamp created from the run off of the Roundback and Vereker Ranges. To get here I had just spent seven hours traversing around the rocky coastal fringe of the Cathedral. I was exhausted and so focused on cooking my dinner at the time that I almost missed this sight. Fortunately I did look behind me and was staggered at the colour of the sky which, minutes before, had been so grey and bland. Immediately I envisioned catching the sky in the still lake which was close by. Upon reaching the lake so taken aback was I from the reflection and the perfect touch of ducks sitting in the middle of it that I audibly sighed disturbing the ducks and ruining the reflection. Fortunately the water stilled again before the light was gone but alas no ducks.

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
