Placid Waterfall — Glenorchy

Newer Older

I'm in love with this shot. There is so much going on here, everywhere I look I find a new surprise I didnt see last time!

I found this placid waterfall on my way home from Glenorchy a few days ago. The light was fading, and the wind was intense... Challenging conditions for an HDR, but I think the movement in the trees really helps sell the emotion of the scene.

I had actually spotted this from the other side of the road that runs from Glenorchy to Queenstown. I thought it was a lot closer than it turnout out to be, and ended up negotaiting a road that I really shouldnt have taken my Subaru GTB over (I bottomed it out)... Then I took a short walk up a canyon and found this magical little spot!

Zoom into 100% and take a look around, so many cool little details to discover! Let me know wheat you like below, or make a note...


Post processing this was actually a walk in the park. The photomatix settings I had for a previous edit were still up, and it looked fantastic!

Pulling it into Photoshop, I found very little I didnt like. Besides the usual sharpen and curves there was little to be done.

I'm always very concious of not editing shots the same day they are taken, I feel I need to be in the right zone to get a result I'm happy with... This is one of those that is well worth the wait!

    Great Shot. How far from GY is this? Plan on visiting this area in March, and would like to see it and photograph it. Thanks

    If you are headed back from GY to Queenstown, its about 10-15km out of GY itself... Here is the Google maps link:
