Hopetoun Waterfall, Otway National Park for Black and White weekend

 


This is probably one of the most photographed waterfall in my home state. Everyone has to get a shot of this location before they die. 

I have been here since the high school days. A lot of memory here. Now there are far too many kids and photographers that the natural vibe is forever lost.

The shot is more high key because microfourthirds sensor easily get blown highlights. Taking the waterfall shot requires a homogenous lighting that one should only attempt in early morning or late evening time. I am lazy lol. So a high key conversion. 

Panasonic G9

Leica 8-18mm

  1. ...now I can die in peace seeing your image. I'm afraid that I won't be able to see it for myself.

    1. Haha this is no comparison to all the wonderful waterfalls around the world. In the dry part of the world, this is good enough comparing to the wee size waterfalls in other parts of Victoria.

  4. Many of the waterfalls-- especially in Oregon-- are deluged with photographers every day, and I doubt that one original unique results from the cacophony of clicks. By the way, one of your beach pictures-- the giant rocks look like the ship in Time Bandits.

    1. Thank you for the comment and visit. The giant rock you saw is from a back beach near Melbourne Mornington Peninsula district. Most of the beach is often under the water in high tide.

  6. I especially like this picture. It works very well in high key conversion. It gives an almost abstract result
