The Golden Creek


This is a digitally enhanced creek scene from one of our most interesting Victorian state parks and reserves at Turtons Creek, which is located between Mirboo North and Foster in South Gippsland.

I actually went down here several times, sitting the tripod carefully in the water and waiting for the lighting to be more gently filtered. Taking pictures in the Australian bush can be challenging, especially when the sun is steaming down through the canopy which creates harsh shadows OR when the light is too dim to enable fast enough shutter speeds.

With water shots though, we like to slow them down to create the motion blur. It was worth the wait to capture this picture.
