Guardians of Time

Another long exposure from the Remarkable Rocks on Kangaroo Island in South Australia.

As I mentioned in previous post, I am keen to make the most of any photographic opportunity that I get, regardless of conditions. I never know if I ever will be able to re-visit some of the places that we have been to. This was especially true at this amazing location. The sunrises and sunsets presented next to nothing in terms of dynamic light and tones. I had to work hard with different compositions and utilise long exposure to breath a bit of life into the photographs I took.

The area is very interesting on its own. The red hues in the rocks, the shapes of the rocks themselves and the textures are all fascinating. I loved every minute we spent there but I just wished for a break in the clouds, for some light to burst through, however, that was not the case.

I hope that my composition and the ethereal mood of the long exposure make up a little bit for the lack of dramatic light. I have also learned a lot in terms of post processing over the last year. I have used dodging and burning and local contrast adjustments to bring vibrancy to this scene and to bring out the detail of these wonderful rocks.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV 5/2 seconds F/11.0 ISO 100 16 mm
