Thanks for rallying the troops Marc,
A good day out, and I missed the long trail. Might go back again this weekend, if not Easter.
Took three 8x10 shots but had problems with condensation forming on the back of the camera, making it difficult to focus - especially when using tilts.
Yes, it is much less disturbed rainforest environment than, for instance, many places in the Otways that were hitherto unknown to many people and now over-run by them, or with walking tracks penetrating deeper and deeper. Toorongo is also much greener and healthier, probably its location but generally lack of disturbance. The bracket fungi was in proliferation and several varieties and is always a crowd puller.
Those B&W shots of Toorongo Falls are impressive, as are the IR images. I shot only Velvia and will scan and prep some on Sunday after collecting them.
“The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see." ~Edward Weston, 1922.
