Emerging…. like my Telstra Internet

I shall not delve into the recent terrors of dealing with my favourite Australia Telco (Telstra) regarding my cable modem upgrade (not by choice) other than to say, there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

I cannot even claim victory, but at the very least my internet works.,.. and works the way I want it too 🙂

I really like this scene, but its a hard one to convey in an image, the depth and light are just something I accept will only be truly understood by being there.. the warm light, the warm tree in a sea of grey, unrecognisable twisted net and the soft (well its actually a bit spikey but hey) green grass…

Choose the right Path

Damn, I have heard that a few times in my youth 😉

I have walked down many paths (not metaphorically now!) at all hours of the day and night and sometimes its nice to come across a path after bush-bashing through the scrub, gives oneself some feeling of comfort that your heading int the right direction 🙂 well at least were someone else has traveled, you know… less chance of shakey snakes etc 🙁

These particular paths I suspect are pretty well worn by fisherman and local walkers, one of which I bumped into quite unexpectedly in the wee hours of the morning, I think she was as surprised as me to see someone else was crazy enough to be out.

I never planned these to be a triptych, however after reviewing the images it seemed like the appropriate means to present them, however I do like the first image and think it could work nicely on its own (wih that cool 'S'' curve and all), however thats for a rainy day processing session 🙂 The trick with triptyches is to get the images to flow and match, which, is easy to say, much harder to do, one day I will go out with the specific purpose for this to make sure the horizons line up and the bits on the left and right of the frames are complimentary, rather then juggling and cropping them after the fact.

Exif love (typical for each image):

Its wicked world

and there's tiger striped rock hiding behind the bushes out to get you 🙂

I originally started with 5 landscape orientation images stitched together, this got cropped pretty ruthlessly down to what you can see now, which is probably only about 3 or 4 images overlapped 50%
I was not quite sure what composition I wanted when i took the shots, all I knew I wanted to included the element of the tiger rock, the foliage/bushes and the spooky star trek Enterprise shaped island in it 🙂

Exif/setup love:
D750 coupled with 16-35mm f4 @ 30mm Aperture: f/14 and Shutter Speed: 1/2s
ISO: 100
out front – Lee Graduated Filter (0.9x) and Hoya CPL
