I don’t think I’ve taken a more challenging photo than this. First I had to find a way through spooky undergrowth to a crumbly cliff edge (there’s an zone marked “Tiger Snake Breeding Area” on the cliffs almost dead centre of this photo, but something tells me they don’t all just hang out over there). Then there was the extreme tonal range, from the sun on Jarosite head to the mallee and tea-tree scrub in the shadows of the cliff.  This is a 6 image stitch and each exposure was 3.2 seconds, so I had to take the series quickly enough to avoid the clouds moving and getting disjointed waves passing through the bay. Then there was the processing: 1.1 Gb files are pretty slow to rotate to get the horizon level.  After all that, I think it was worth it.

    Great image Stuart, yep it was definitely worth the effort and very glad you didn’t come across any tiger snakes….

    Thanks, Peta. I’ll have to go back and get a picture of the warning sign (might leave that for winter)
