Waking Up Inside Boranup Forest

A night spent camping in the forest in summer alone is a little creepy. It gets dark in there, really dark and as soon as the sun goes down every insert and creepy crawly and flying bug is out as well as the 1000′s of bats that live in the caves near by.

After a pretty sleepness night from all the noise and waking before dawn to pack up and find the location I wanted to shoot.. I had this idea for a type of image that showed the forest in a way I had not seen before. Having seen countless images from Boranup I wanted to attempt something different. My idea evolved through the night as ideas came and went fast, but something was sticking and that was to try and produce an image that showed the colour and depth of the forest but also not in a stationary way, as the forest is alive and always moving I also wanted to show this. I took 3 images at different shutter speeds and ever so slight camera movement to achieve the final result.

This is the final result of my thoughts and planning while spending my first and not last night inside Boranup Forest.

Abandonment On Hwy 395

Recently I added an image to my Facebook Page that was quite a departure from my normal type of image. While I had taken the image some 2 years ago the post production was never completed for a number of reasons, one being I had a complete mental block on the image until recently … The original posting on the Facebook Page was somewhat darker in a number of areas and a few folks had mentioned that I could do with lightening up the left corner a little more … Thus leading to this posting of the new post post production of the image …

Thanks to those that helped put with the constructive critique and artistic approach of this image to enable this image to get to where it is right now … One of my favorites in recent months ….
