There is nothing more rewarding than heading out for a dawn landscape shoot in inclement weather, knowing that the conditions will probably be quite dreadful, and then encountering an utterly amazing sky during a small window of opportunity so familiar to landscape photographers.
This is an awesome sunrise on Mt Mee, north-west of Brisbane in Queensland.
During this shoot we only had a brief window of magic before the inclement conditions returned, and the rest of the day was grey, wet and gloomy. You’d never know that such a sunrise happened on an otherwise dull day.
This is a new version of an older image, which I originally shot, processed and published in April of 2010. I decided not to keep the original version I processed, and instead replaced it with this version. It’s interesting to see how beneficial an extra three years of post-processing experience can be.
