Bush Canvas, Berowra, NSW
I love the area I call home, be it the country of the town. And I love taking photos of it, be it far away or close by. One thing though… the wide open expanses of the outback lend themselves to vistas, whereas the area nearer Berowra is a little more difficult to take panoramas. In fact, apart from Berowra Waters where some areas are possible, I have taken very few panoramas of the area. So I decided to give it a crack. It all looks so peaceful, however, would you believe was pretty much standing in a tree with my tripod, and had to grab and hold a large bush to keep it out of the way at the right hand side of the frame to take this? In processing, I accented the mist using the Orton Effect applied sparingly.
Technically it is eight images – a four shot horizontal pano, each with two exposures blended. The final shot was then cropped to a 2:4 to 1 ratio. The fog came and went as it always does, and the light levels rose as the sun came up in the morning sky. The first hints of blue sky appeared among the tendrils of the mist, and the rock of escarpment gives a nice contrast to the shimmer of the mist.
In the end it reminded me of a real bush canvas painting. Could be ‘Anywhere Australia’ really.
