The Tunnel Grim…

by on Apr.09, 2017, under Life, Photography

Gerry had in mind for us to visit this Glow Worm Tunnel. It was only seventy kilometres or so from Katoomba but it was a more than two hours drive to get there. Who knew it would be nearly 90 minutes of horrendous dirt road experience to get there!

NIKON D750 + 12 mm f/2.8 @ 12 mm, 117 sec at f/4, ISO 200, 1600 & 2500

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

Once there it was about a 30-45 minute walk from the carpark out to the tunnel. It was actually quite a nice tunnel (as far as tunnels go). Yes there were some glow worms in the tunnel but seriously not that many.

I was pretty damn surprised how many people were out there walking through the tunnel – it was like grand central station it was so busy :).

Anyway inbetween people walking through your frames we managed to get Gerrys’ pixel stick out for another grim reaper effort. Mixed with some coloured torch lighting and a high ISO long exposure for the glow worms (composited in) and we have the crap above :). Unfortunately that’s as good as the glow worm tunnel got. Lets hope for better things next time!.
