My Top Ten Images 2013

I never got around to doing one of these posts for 2013, better late than never.

Daylesford, Victoria. I built a machine to slowly turn the zoom ring on the lens, after about 18 months of tests I got the shot that I had in mind from the beginning.

Maldon, Victoria. Another variation on zooming during the exposure, this one was a 30 second exposure with the zoom and focus adjusted by hand.

Buckland Valley, Victoria. This scene caught me by surprise, I'd packed up and headed home from another location due to rain, then this happened.

Eurobin Falls, Mt Buffalo, Victoria. Drove for 5 hours and then realized I'd left the tripod at home. Saw a kid walking on the side of the road with a $50 tripod, bought it off him for $100, then threw it in the bin when I got home.
