Brrrrr….

The mornings are getting dark and chilly down this way – we are not too many weeks away from scenes like this appearing on my lawn (minus the 3,700m mountain peak and glacier fed river obviously).  Fortunately for me, this image was made by Sarah a couple of years ago, while I slept in my nice warm bed.

Here’s a question for the photographers amongst you.  At the time that this image was made we were shooting on both Canon and Nikon equipment – can you guess from the colours which brand this was made on?

    Here’s an idea for dosh for the Sisson couple. Visit a few GPs and suggest your fabulous pics be available to their buggered up, stressed out patients on BP medication as an alternative to, or at least an add on . to their stress remedies. Heh … sometimes the silliest of comments contain a kernel of truth.

    That must be one hardy girl you have there!
    Like the angle of the shot giving the river its power.

    I donated some of my best shots, printed, to my dentist. Now his patients get to see my pics when they are in the chair. Not sure if that is real good association going on there.

    why is there an ‘unrealness’ to these photos? They look more like very accurate paintings than real life images.

    That probably was the aim of the photographer. For instance, the water in the foreground shows some motion blur, due to the low-ish shutter speed. But the background is sharp. Plus, the post-processing is designed to bring out the contrast and detail, a step that is often omitted. Todd/Sarah were not trying to make a ‘real life’ image, but something more artistic than that.
