Fallen Poplar, Lake Jindabyne
Gelatin-silver photograph on Ultrafine Silver Eagle VC FB photographic paper, image size 24.7cm X 19.5cm, from a 8x10 Fomapan 400 negative exposed in a Tachihara 810HD field view camera fitted with a Fujinon-W 300mm f5.6 lens.
The poplar tree had no fault. Lake Jindabyne is an impoundment within the Snowy Mountain Scheme and suffers large changes of level according to water demand elsewhere. The tree, supported by unusually wet earth, could not resist a heavy blow whistling down from the mountains. Bad luck comes uninvited.
