One from a few months back from Marysville, Victoria.
I’ve made a few trips out to Marysville since moving over earlier this year as it’s a beautiful place especially during miserable weather. The waterfalls come alive and the hills are surrounded by fog. Perfect conditions for landscape photography.
This photograph is actually a two shot stitch as I wanted to capture the beauty of the surrounding trees while leaving some space around the foreground rocks. It leaves a lot of empty space but hopefully works okay. While I also used a Canon 5D Mark Ii, Canon 17-40 lens, circular polariser filter and tripod to capture the image.
You might be interested in a recent waterfall photography guide I published on my blog which explores the equipment needed for waterfall photography, compares shutter speeds and how these can affect your image and other bits.
The Meeting of the Waters is a beautiful short walk in the Yarra Valley, Victoria and not a corny photography title I just came up with (honest…!). This waterfall photograph is a two image stitch captured with the Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40 and Hoya Circular Polariser. I was quite impressed by the stunning tree but unfortunately it didn’t fit the frame right. Instead two images were captured and later stitched in PTGui to better capture it.
An old favourite of mine captured in April 2008 of a small stream inland from St Helens at St Columbia Falls. As this was taken a few years ago, it was shot with my previous setup of a Canon 350D, Canon 10-22 and a tripod. I didn’t get many keepers that day as the sun was patchy and my kit lacked a circular polariser. But fortunately I caught a moment where the sun was diffused and created a nice evenly lit scene.
Another couple of photos from last weekend but this time captured at Cora Lynn Falls in the Yarra Ranges National Park. For the first photo I awkwardly perched myself on a small rock after scaling down from the tourist lookout which didn’t offer much in the way of views. It was still rather limited but I’m happy with how it came out. While the second is looking down Cora Lynn Falls reminding me of a viewpoint similar to that of Liffey Falls.
Both shots captured with a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40, Hoya Circular Polariser and Manfrotto tripod. A little bit of layer blending for both to bring out the foliage surrounding the waterfall and also tinkering with the white and black points. For the second photo I decided to drop the shadows significantly which brought out the colour and tone of the foliage nicely.
