Pic of the Week_Dusk_Port Campbell National Park

Low light photography at Port Campbell National Park_Victoria_Australia

Canon 5D camera and Canon 24mm f2.8 L series Aspherical lens_15 seconds @ f2.8 ISO 400

I’ve opted for a relatively surreal rendering of this scene. Many of you will recognize the location, near the famous Twelve Apostles, in the Port Campbell National Park along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. The image was made, with darkness encroaching, with the very last light of the day.

The slow shutter speed, required by the very low light levels, helped add a soft glow to the incoming tide. Clearly the light illuminating the large foreground cliff face is the main focal point within the image. It is further emphasized by the brooding darkness that surrounds and seems to envelope it.

Image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 3 and Adobe Photoshop CS5.
