Drove up a 7km hill to this lookout point near Lightning Lake…Fantastic view!
Then we drove a bit further, and then hiked up a bit, and got this view!
Not sure the pictures do the view justice. Second pano has the sky blown out…probably needed a tripod, and several exposures to combine into an HDR to do it right…Click on the images to see a slightly larger version…the original images are HUGE! (5 x 12 Megapixels!)
OK…we could see the almost full moon from our campsite, through the trees, it looked fantastic! Taking a picture of it was quite difficult. This was the best I could do. I think I need to blame it on my camera…if I adjusted the aperture for the moon, so it wasn’t totally blown out, the surrounding trees/sky were too dark. I tried post processing to bring up the sky, and thus the tree silhouettes, but this was as good as it got. I think to capture this properly, I would need a tripod, and take several pictures with different exposures…then create a HDR (High Dynamic Range) combined image. Maybe next time.
A sunset, water, reflections and a hand made boat…it’s peaceful at Lightning Lake!
Thanks to my niece for pointing this shot out to me! Nice colours in the sky…great for a silhouette!
Another shot of lightning lake in Manning park…Beautiful lake for canoeing/kayaking etc. No motors allowed!
Trip to Manning park, Lightning Lakes… More pics to come!
