Vertical Tumbling…

by on Mar.20, 2017, under Life, Photography

So… as is pretty typical these days I get a late night message from Gerry – “keen for some action tomorroz?”. Of course it’s been pouring here in Sydney for a week or two, with vertical and horizontal rain just bucketing down.

After some debate as to potential locations from far and wide… With all this rain we’re looking to shoot some more waterfalls and maybe a spot of macro. I eventually suggest we forgo sunrise (I figure it’s going to be horrendous anyway – if it isn’t pouring) and opt for a mid morning start after we see what the rain is doing.

The image above is my first shot of the morning. Again I’ve lugged my Novoflex pano kit in so I start with that for this four (4) frame vertical panorama (vertorama). I decided to forgo the upper falls first up and headed downstream to these fantastic boulders and lush green growth with the water bubbling this way and that. I’m actually pretty damn happy with how this turned out for a first shot of the day. Thats Gerry up there on the right – shooting the upper falls.

The image below is a single vertical composition from a similar position.

Oh yeah – where did we decide to go… well we opted for something nearby (in fact it’s within my 15 minutes from home circle so gotta be happy with that). This is Sugarloaf Creek in the leafy and expensive north shore suburb of Castlecrag.

It’s actually pretty amazing these waterfalls exist so close to suburbia – I mean major roads and houses are literally just a stones throw from here.
