A wintry view from Mount Stromlo

johnboy 4 May 2009 15

While we bask in autumnal sunshine today it’s worth remembering the taste of winter we had last week.

Pommie Bastard has sent in this picture he took from Mount Stromlo.

Nice drama and atmospherics. I see the Canberra frosts and fogs from above, with the sun warming it all up.

No worries, thanks again! I ride up Mt Stromlo all the time (I live just around the corner), so that one is like a pic of my home territory.

Many thanks for the comments, I’m humbled.

The image was taken as a three shot HDR. There is a slight missalignment if you look closely at the lakes. (Thanks for the software advice CoffeeGeek)

It was then opened in photoshop, and the blue hue which was already predominant, was pushed further to give the saturated effect. Pushing the blue gave it a slightly grainy feel, which I liked, so I added a little “watercolour” filter to enhance that.

Thanks again to all.

PS. it peed down just after the shot was taken.

You have an amazing talent, PB – most impressed by this latest pic!

Another top pic PB! Was the pic taken using a filter or are those colours all natural? Either way, Nice!

Justbands, I’ll happily send you the full sized image with would give you a much better resolution for a desktop background.

(Johnboy, can you link to fullsized images?)
