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…

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.

This Edwardian gatehouse building hangs off the edge of the embankment which has perhaps some of the best views in Launceston. The building is owned by the council and serves as an open studio for local artists.
