A wonderful capture, Warren, a textbook example of creating "depth" in a landscape. It's spectacular, and it looks like a picture that came out of your camera in perfect state. (Not that I mind a bit of honest postwork.)
Eric, G'day. I hope that you are well. I'm not feeling at all well, now that you think things come out of my camera in a near perfect state. (Though to self ... Where have I gone wrong giving that impression?)
"(Not that I mind a bit of honest postwork.)"
You are going to hate my next lot of less than honest processing, He..he..he!
Can I tell you a little story about someone who captured the atmosphere perfectly?
Earlier this Spring I was climbing a mountain near home called Mount Tennent. It was a relatively easy climb but starting to rain. Half way to the top, I could hear voices and a short while after a young boy walked out of the bush soon followed by his mother and father and young sister who was a young teenager. The boy was 7 years old, he told me. I asked him, how was he liking climbing the mountain. It was raining and it wasn't easy on the wet rocks, I was expecting him to say that he was finding it difficult.
He said to me, "Where is the mountain?" I told him that he was on the mountain. Then I asked him where are you from, "Switzerland!" he replied.
His reply captured the atmosphere perfectly. I guess to a person from Switzerland the biggest mountains here in Australia are just mere hills.
haha great story Did this really happen to you? Sure..hills in Switzerland are higher, but you proved with this picture that Australian mountains (or hills ) are at least as beautiful as Swiss mountains
