The usual landscape advice of shooting early or late in the day does not work in a forest where one tree shades another unless the light is coming straight down. The pale bark of Snow Gum trees also helps t...

Re: Baron Plains Rd

Wow! Burnishing! A sublimely luminous technique fully supporting your original vision for this beautifully composed subject. I tried to find these trees using Google Earth but got lost in central Tasmania. Thank goodness you are out there and achieving a remarkable run of successes.

Re: Billy Buttons in Snow

Thanks RoganJosh and Walter Glover . Finding these compositions is hard but not as hard as getting to them and setting up a camera. Off piste snow is treacherous, sometimes unexpectedly waist deep and sometimes dead slippery with ice. I have nightmare visions of falling on my back like an overturned...
