Dangar by Dusk by DrewHopper Dangar by Dusk by DrewHopper
I've always wanted to shoot these falls at night. Never really bothered shooting from a lower perspective, as the lookout platform is a great vantage point. Anyway, long exposure of the All Mighty Dangar Falls - Dorrigo, NSW Australia.

40D
480sec exposure
f/11
ISO200

Those numbers don't add up. Even30sec @ f/11 iso200 gives total whiteout. Except I guess if you have an uber-dark filter? It is a beautiful shot. But why not f/29?

It was taken at night with no artificial light around. The moon was rather full so that lit up the scene enough to keep my iso low. No need to close the aperture anymore, that would be exposing for longer or increasing iso which I didn't want to do.

The sky really stands out to me in this picture, the clouds compliment the falls so well its crazy. The whole photo almost looks like a really detailed drawing from the lion king or something. I'm a big fan of that one tree that just pops up in the middle there too. XD

Beautiful. I just got a wired release and I'm looking forward to some long exposures...

Taken at night, so the wind had settled by the time I opened the shutter. It's pretty straight forward actually, just another shorter shutter for the sky :)
