I walk through the Cataract Gorge almost every day. The one thing that stands out as a characteristic unlike almost any place I have known is that this almost natural basin and the gorges leading in and out have their own micro climate. When this photo was taken the the area had clouds flowing through it not mist as there was a bit of breeze these were clouds drifting down and flowing out. It was quite an eerie sensation…
In another 28 days that ole moon will rise slap dab in the centre of the bridge but unfortunately it won’t appear as large as this one! Raw image processed in Luminar. The app is very nice to use I feel the noise reduction could be a little stronger and a little better. This was shot at ISO 640 resting on a rail. I havent done a side by side comparrison yet but it seems about the same as LR.

A pair ducks by night, safe from the feral cats roosting on a rock. I could see the ducks as a subtle silhouette agains the distant lights of the path that circum navigates the first basin in Launceston. To illuminate the ducks I gently waved a small LED torch across the rock to get the reflection in the water and the light spill over was enough to illuminate the ducks without scaring them. The exposure was 15 seconds at ƒ2.8 taken on a Zeiss 25mm Leica M lens mounted on the Xpro1
