Grass Trees Regenerating After Fire_Wilsons Promontory National Park_Victoria

Canon 1D Mark II camera and Canon 24-70 f2.8 L series lens @ 24mm. Exposure Details: 1/50 second @ f11 ISO 400.

I love Wilsons Promontory National Park. Situated on the southern most tip of the Australian mainland, its one of my favorite places for landscape photography. Over recent years several fires have adversely affected the prom’s landscape and wildlife. In response to this devastation I undertook the production of a series of photographs that explored nature’s regenerative powers at work at the prom.

The above image of a common grass tree, photographed along the Lighthouse Walk track, was an ideal candidate. While the central element was severely blackened, the surrounding blades of re-grow suggested a positive outcome to the story. In fact many Australian flora species rely on fire to stimulate the grow process.

The original color image was rendered into black-and-white in Adobe Lightroom 3. A subtle warm tone was then applied in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
