Smashed! / Gerringong, South Coast, NSW, Oz
(ISO64 f/10 1/60sec)
From a recent sunrise shoot, waves were pumping, constantly trying to dodge those BIG ones.
This one got me good, but not before I managed to capture these beautiful rock pools!
If you can’t afford a ticket to @visitmars, just @visitjordan. It’s pretty much the same.
Fun Fact: The movie The Martian (Der Marsianer) was not actually filmed on Mars. It was filmed right here. ☝🏻 Sorry if this just turned your life upside down.

@Lennart between the giant walls of Wadi Mujib. Crazy fact that this canyon is 410m below sea level where it enters the Dead Sea 😳. What an incredible corner of the earth!
Best seat in the house. Couldn’t be more thankful to be able to travel with friends and my dog. Keeps my heart full 🙏🏻

We got awesome conditions during a frigid sunrise at Picture Lake over the weekend. The last fall foliage was still showing off its reds and oranges while we were treated with some early snow. My alarm woke me to find frozen condensation on the insides of my car windows; a sure sign it’s going to be a cold morning. Waking up early is one thing, but having to pull yourself out of your warm, cozy sleeping bag into the cold morning air is just tough. Adding to it the clouds looked overcast and too thick for any color to happen. I’m not really sure how, but eventually I mustered up the will to pull myself out of the car and venture into the darkness.
I have been to Picture Lake again and again, but the neat part about changing seasons is that they provide new and different compositions. There wasn’t enough snow or ice to find any real “wintery” compositions so I searched for something to show off the last Fall colors. There honestly wasn’t much. Most patches were either dead, non colorful or were facing away from the mountain. Eventually I settled on this patch of reddish foliage which I have always liked.
As the official sunrise time neared it was looking more and more like a bust. There was a slight glow in the air, but it didn’t look like much. When a sunrise looks to be lacking drama and color long exposure shots can really come in handy. I pulled out my 6 stop ND filter and started taking some 30 second long exposures. They immediately helped pull out significantly more color and brought out the cool streaks you see in the sky. Using long exposures helped turn this into a shot I’m quite fond of and I think I can finally say I have a shot I enjoy from all three main seasons at Picture Lake: Wildflowers, Fall and Winter. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
