My husband went for a bike ride today, all the way to a place called Warburton (look up Warburton, Victoria, Australia on google maps). He goes there to ride up a mountain. He usually only rides up once, but I told him to do it twice and I would come and pick him up. Road trip.
One of the things that is interesting about Warburton is that the Yarra River come from that area. It winds it’s way from Warburton, past our place in Heidelberg and then on into the city. I really wanted to get some photos of the river up there, because it is very different to the river near me and very different to the river I have taken photos of in the city.
I had intended Sunday’s to be about flowers, but well, it isn’t always possible. I did some photos that were near the river.
I don’t know what happened, but I was having a lot of trouble getting these images. It isn’t a fantastic image, but, but I really like it, I like the colours I think. You decide whether or not you like it.
I did have a neutral density filter on the lens and a polarising filter. I wanted to cut down the glare and the sunshine on the water. I don’t think it made for great photos of the flowers.
Now onto the river.
This is another HDR and I think this one works so much more. The sun was really bright, but putting the neutral density 8+ filter and the polarising filter really helped cut the light down and I was able to get that water marshmallow effect. I was really happy that I could get it.
I just couldn’t get over how different the river is there. You could walk across it. The river can be quite stunning around here as well. If I can I might go out in the morning and get some photos of it at a place near me.
