From Mountains to Water

So you may or may not know that I live in Brisbane, Australia.  We don’t have soaring skylines or amazing historical buildings, but we’re fortunate to be blessed some quite nice natural landscapes around, such as the one here.  Technically this was taken on the Gold Coast, which actually has more than just the golden beaches for which it’s famous.  I really like the effect of having sky, mountain and water all in the one frame.

Maybe one day I’ll own one of those houses with their own boat dock….

Burning sunset over the waters (Instax)

INST_013

I was really interested in how this one turned out.  As you can see, shooting into the sun can cause a new kind of image aberration when using the Instax.  It looks like it is just way too bright for the crystals in the film, leading to a burn-out dot.  I’ve reliably reproduced it in other photos since, so it’s not just a one off.
