Cedar Creek bridge – little slice of paradise

Tropical clear creek

I researched and found this small creek about 45mins outside of Brisbane. I scoured google maps doing a little online scouting of the area. Was able to get out for a couple hours to take some shot. I love going out to these type of little natural beauties. I could happily wanted around the area, taking in the scenery, building scenes in my mind.

Flow from stone bridge

I found this stone bridge that crossed over the creek and I knew I could work a composition I would be happy with. The conditions were rather strong sunlight in combination with the shaded areas causing very specular highlights. I had to wait for the a passing cloud to help tone down the dynamic range to make the shot more manageable  Once I had the composition finalised, I just waited. I think I waited maybe 10 mins before a small cloud arrived to diffuse the sunlight and help with lighting of this scene. I could certainly think of a worse place to spend 10 mins.
