Welcome Sunset by FireflyPhotosAust Welcome Sunset by FireflyPhotosAust
While up in Taree for a miniature horse we caught up with Nathan =mental3pal and took us out to his school to show us one of his favourite views.

To take this shot we needed to clamber through a farmer's fence and wade into a dam - luckily I was prepared and had some gum boots with me.

I was keeping a watchful eye out for any snakes while I was standing knee deep in the dam amongst the reeds! Danni kept herself amused by watching how much trouble we took with our shots and probably quietly chuckling at how stupid we looked.

I bracketed 3 exposures for this scene and then fused them with photomatix pro before making slight levels adjustment and sharpening for presentation.

The sunset was very welcome has it had been an extremely hot day.

Nathan has already submitted a similiar shot

Great snap! If I can ask you a technical question about that pic, did you use flash to illuminate the foreground?

Thanks, no I didn't use a flash, I used graduated ND filters for a longer exposure:-)

I usually use ND4 grads for such purposes but it seemed a bit odd that the front plants had white (and not orange tint). I have to learn more :) Thanks for the quick reply!

Thank you very much. One minute the sky was boring and then it changed to this:-)

It's a pleasure. :D
Um, I know, the weather can go from one extreme to the other pretty fast sometimes.
We had nice sunshine this morning only to have snow in the afternoon. :D

Apparently this is one that I missed when I was so busy at the end of the fall. Well I am glad I found it now! It is gorgeous, Malcolm! I love the way the sunlight touches bits of the pond golden all the way up to the front. Not to mention the splendid sky!!
