Alpine creek

This is one of my favourite photos – the movement of the water fascinates me. It was taken in a rush at the end of a skiing holiday in Thredbo, NSW before packing up the car and heading home. Carrying all of my gear, I wandered up and down the creek until I found elements that I could isolate – a simple interplay between rocks, water and light. The rest is merely technical – focus, a shutter speed that shows motion but retains detail, and exposure to ensure that everything fell into the 5 stop range afforded by black and white film.
