[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Early morning on an overcast day in the Walls of Jerusalem National Park. I was hoping to be able to capture the sunlight on King David's Peak in the left of the shot, but the clouds didn't co-operate with me. Instead, I captured this shot, which is a lot darker and moodier than what I was intending.

I think this photo could be very Symbolic.

It has a very harsh enviroment and a quite sombre feel to it all. But as rays apprach the darkness it seem to be pleasant and warm.

Sorry to be poetic but it's how I feel from it. It's very nice.


Hello Damien,

Really it's a pity, but, There is a nice place. And your Job was good too! Dont worry! This things happen same that :) but, we can learn a lot with all its! :D I liked your picture, sure, the sunlight wasnot so hardy, but we can look for that there are a interesting Hill, Clouds.. and maybe a river? :) Nice! Well Well Done! Damien!
Congrats! God bless you! ^^
have a nice day.

ticii =O)

your moodiest shot yet. good location and choice of film.Perhaps a little underexposed but it works in this picture. King Davids Peak is menacing and the contrast between the Dark cold Peak and the warm sunlight is very stark (i'm thinking of doing a workshop on this but i'm going to think about it for a while.Maybe some more saturation in the colours perhaps..just something subtle)

It's crazy how Tasmania can be "Mordor" or Heaven just thanks to the lightness on the landscapes. The way you explained your photo seems "just Tasmania" to me, so unpredictable and so amazingly beautiful country...
I love your photo anyway!
Thank you for sharing Damien :)
