Panoramic Fern

This little fern and its mates were the star attraction of my visit to Cataract Falls in Lawson.

This image is an example (of mine) of partially 'seeing' the image before taking it. I saw the fern, the moss and the tiny little falls and associated eddy currents and immediately the panoramic view came to mind first with the fern leading the viewer into the frame and towards the secondary element, the falls. The view inside my head also had this neat 3rd fern swirling around in the little eddy current in the top right of the frame creating a warn tan colour in the water…however after several attempts it was simply not gonna happen:) hence the 'partial seeing' of the image.

This image is actually 3 images stitched together to make the full panoramic format, whilst I probably could have take one shot at 17mm (DX) and got it all in then subsequently cropped, i took the route of 3 stitched images which was easily achievable give the conditions.

(and i did place the fern 🙂 )
