Taming the Lily Pond…

by on Sep.17, 2015, under Life, Photography

Lily Creek Lagoon sat right next to our caravan park and with this huge expanse of super still water providing a spectacular mirror to the scenery within and beyond the water it would be a crime not to capture it.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Taming the Lily Pond

NIKON D750 + 28.0-300.0 mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 98 mm, 20 sec at f/13, ISO 100 x 14 frames

Here’s my take with a 14 shot stitched long exposure panorama taken with the ever useful 28-300mm all purpose travel lens. All the frames were taken with a Lee 0.6 GND stacked with the Lee BigStopper to stretch the exposures out to 20 seconds each. Taken at 98mm this gives a nice tight view of the landscape and I just needed a lot of frames to cover a wider horizontal view in massive detail. It probably wasn’t necessary but hey I’m always up for a (photographic) challenge :). Zooming in on this baby I can likely see the ants on the trees out in Lily Creek Lagoon.
