Cudgegong Curves

by on Aug.19, 2020, under Life, Photography

As I was leaving Lake Windamere after our morning sunrise session I stopped alongside the road out that snaked along the Cudgegong River to fly the drone and photograph from the air

DJI Mavic 2 Pro L1D-20c + 28.0 mm f/2.8 @ 10.26 mm, 1/120 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100

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.

Two more images from the morning session which I’ve done two different monochrome conversions on

Silver Linings

Many areas of the lake had very large clusters of trees. This make for quite busy scenes and it was difficult to have more isolated and simple compositions

I spent a bit of time trying to get the composition below to work. Shifting around on the shoreline to try and have no merges with the trees. (no parts where the branches of the different trees overlapped)

These are probably my favourite (land based) images of the morning on Lake Windamere. Particularly the image below which I feel has a particularly comforting composition

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.

Still very early morning (just pre dawn). I’ve stacked a 4-stop ND with the CPL to lengthen the exposures to smooth the water. The fog is still hugging the hills around us but alas not drifting down onto the water

Using a longer focal length on the handy new Z 24-200 lens allows some more selective compositions with a little compression of the background
