Clouds in the First Basin


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…

Fuji Xpro1 ƒ4  1/600 ISO 640 18-55 lens
With a bit of adjustment to the dynamic range settings in camera and careful exposure, the Xpro sensor is capable of wonderful things. It works from darkest shadows to the most delicate tint of the last reflection of the setting sun on the clouds. I am very fortunate to live close to the Cataract Gorge in Launceston and I walk through this wonderful place almost every evening in all weathers and seasons.
