The tangled mossy roots reach out over the rainforest floor in search of water. This shot was taken near Oreily’s rainforest retreat in the Hinterland south-west of Brisbane.
The heavy undergrowth and the light seeking canopy created some challenging photographic conditions. A tripod is a must as shutter speeds are often well into seconds. A polariser can really help cut away unwanted glare, which is everywhere in a rainforest lush moist foliage. Again the polariser takes away even more light. I had one exposure of a particularly shaded area, with the polariser on, ISO200, F/8 and it took a 10 second shutter speed to get enough light onto the sensor for a correct exposure. I hope you enjoy.
