the return

Recently I returned back to where I lived in 2007. I think I know every cove,rock and pandanus in the area better than anyone…So it was a very simple situation of knowing where to go and when to shoot certain scenes under certain light. (which mind you in NQ it doesn’t change too much for 6months or so a year – haha). Here the feature subject of Split rock is actually quite large – perhaps the size of a small apartment. It may appear to be a relatively simple composition to make, but in actual fact it is very difficult to find a decent POV here.The terrain either puts you too low,too left,too right,no water,can’t see the split, too many shrubs…you name it. But…I guess where there is a will – there’s a way !    🙂

  1. Very very nice Tony.
    I love it, extremely well captured.
    What exposure was this?

  2. Tony, just discovered this blog. The shots are great and you seem to be a traveler so ill keep updated!

    your on my blogroll

  3. cheers Tom ! I feel it has a certain ‘glow’ to it. I don’t document my exposure details, so on a trip such as this where I am away and shooting for months at a time I tend to forget the exact details. I think this one was at f22 and quite a lengthy exposure… I hope that helps ?

  4. thanks Sean – you also have some nice shots mate, keep at it.
    stay tuned for more updates. 🙂

  5. Looks like you found a POV that nailed the shot Tony.

  6. Cheers Matt ! Would you believe my beachfront bed was only about 70m from here ! So you can imagine how I ‘had to find a way’ to compose it somehow… 🙂
