Lake Bonney, South Australia...
EXTRAORDINARY!!! There is something absolutely breathtaking about astrophotography…
Lake Bonney, in remote South Australia is home to one of the most amazing freshwater lakes. These ancient trees are somewhere we’ve just been dying to shoot astro for many years. We originally designated around 4 days to shoot here. When we first found this location scouting on Day 1 we were determined to create something unique & different. The composition was precisely what we wanted; the trees really complimented the scenery & the Galactic Centre of the Milky Way was in the perfect spot in the centre of frame.
Each night we shot here we had similar conditions but on the last night we had complete calm & with the lack of wind we even got some star reflections in the water. This is a single exposure so we used a torch on a very low setting to light paint the tree in the foreground to really give the image some depth. The glowing lights you see behind the trees are from the nearby town of Barmera. Straight after this shot, we sat by the waters edge & breathed a sigh of relief. We sat there looking up at the stars in complete awe of just how beautiful our night sky truly is…
