Golden Reflections on Water_Mildura

Golden Reflection on Water_Mildura_MG_2197 Canon 5D camera and Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L series IS USM lens with Canon 2X Extender @ 140mm. Exposure Details: 1/400 second @ f5.6 ISO 400.

The city of Mildura is an oasis in the semi-arid Sunraysia region on the Victorian side of the border with NSW. A major producer of citrus fruits, grapes and wine Mildura has become a burgeoning tourist market providing the visitor with lots of photographic opportunities.

I will be spending quite a bit of time in Mildura during November and December 2009 as stills photographer for the Australian motion picture film Summer Coda. Due to other work commitments I’II be flying back to Melbourne on a weekly basis. It promises to be a busy, fun and exciting time. I should be able to continue my regular daily posts and hope to be able to post images from the shoot from the middle of November onwards.

The primary geographic feature of the region, and the lifeblood of the town, is the might Murray River. The above image was made in May 2007 while on assignment in Mildura. I was fascinated by the luminous colors of the river and by the lines and patterns caused by the wake of the boat from which I was photographing. The contrast in color balance from warm to cool adds an extra visual element to the image.

Processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop CS4.
