Feathertop hues…

This one’s from a glorious sunset on Mt Hotham looking across to Mt Feathertop. The mountain mists with the play of gorgeous pink light was something to behold. It painted the snowgum skeletons from the 2003 alpine fires a roaring pastel pink for a fleeting moment as it danced across the alpine vista.

This image is a section of a 12 image stitch from the 5DII so the full size is pretty sweet ! Though I can only dream of this one if it was with the infamous (although evidently slightly frustrating) TD Phase One !

  4. Very nice – love the soft tones

    • Thanks TP – It was great catching up yesty and congrats on your APPA’s 🙂

  5. +1 looking forward to the full image. The light and lines look great in this section 🙂

    • I had to run my arse off up the road to catch this fleeting bit of light, Tommy P wasn’t too far behind but it was too brief on those trees.
      This is a square crop from the stitch so it comprises of 2-3 images in itself. I’m still sorting heaps of stuff out so I[m not sure when I’ll get back to the pan, I just couldn’t resist this square stitch/crop with that light 🙂
      cheers everyone !

    can you imagine the day that us photographers are actually at a location and prepared for the good light!? 😛
    it’s funny how that is usually when the best images come about- and this is sure one of those times 🙂

    • hey Stephen – yeah it was a pretty special evening/moment in particular, I just wished i had more time with the light on the trees.. ie more than 1 minute !
