    I photographed this location before ( and called the image Shot Tower. I was really shooting the pretty valley in which the Tower is located.

    However my sister said 'Where's the Shot Tower?'

    Armed with a long lens my 70 - 400mm I have returned and now she will know.

    Long Lens Landscaping is not my thing - although I have enjoyed these photos.

    Sony ILCE7R, Cokin CPL, HiTech 0.6 Soft ND, Sony 70-400mm F4-5.6 G SSM II, Sony LAEA4,

    Shot Tower Shower: 1/4 at F5.6 (should be at F8-11!), 140mm, ISO 50


    Long Lens Landscape: 70mm, F5.6, 1/13th

    I was shooting this shot ( at Sandy Bay one day and a guy (a Melbourne artist) said 'I don't like the bald hills.' I like them.

    They remind me of parts of Scotland in winter where the grass browns because of the cold. Funny thing that - the grass greens in summer in the Northern Hemisphere and in Australia it greens in winter.

    This is a crop (2395 x 1347) from a panorama of the Shot Tower Valley. To follow.


    Shot Tower Valley (Taroona): 70mm, F5.6 1/13th to 1/25th

    A 17 shot (portrait orientation) +- 1 exposure value high dynamic range panorama.

    I think the 'bald' hills looks good too. The last shot is stunning.
