Paperbarks at Herdsman

Back to school today…

This is a two image stitch that I took down at Herdsman Lake a few nights ago. I’m not sure if I like the composition very much, the subject matter isn’t very clear and it’s cropped awkwardly. What do you think?

Another shot from my recent trip to Herdsman Lake. Possibly the most cliched title for a photograph ever.

Weeping Willows - Herdsman Lake - 2009

I haven’t posted any photos for a while and it’s all kind of old stuff. I was a little depressed with my Blog counter statometer gadget thing staying at 141 hits, but it’s jumped up to 195! Oh the elation.

So as I approached the double century, I decided to freshen things up and take some new shots. Yesterday morning I woke up at 5 o clock and rode my bike down to Herdsman Lake. Being holidays and such, my usual sleeping hours were something like 12am – 10am, so waking up at 5 was something a bit different.

It wasn’t really very cold and I wasn’t expecting much, just perhaps a nice sunrise and some calm lakes. Without wanting to sound to cliched, it was absolutely stunning. The roads had no cars and as I rode up into the park where the lake was, the whole ground was covered in a thin veil of fog. Very mystical…

There were no people about, but there were two dogs which were behind a fence of a nearby property that kept barking at me whenever I was visible, so I wasn’t allowed around that side of the lake. But I rode around for an hour or so and took a few snaps on my handy Canon Powershot 530 and my little Kathmandu compact travel tripod. Only the best for me.

The colours also were nothing like what I’ve seen before. You wouldn’t believe it, but I had to dull the colours in an attempt to make this picture look more realistic. The original looked like a 4 year old’s first attempt at Photoshop after just discovering the Hue/Saturation button.
