"Dancing Mist"

Share This

“With 62mm of rain forecast for Milford Sound on this day, I made a special trip for the short-lived waterfalls that adorn these sheer cliffs during heavy rainfall. Guided by my trusted weather app, I arrived in the middle of the day, just as the rain had eased & this mist literally "danced" across the rock face. As this was moving during the 5 or so minutes that it took to capture all 20 frames, I had no idea how it might turn out until I stitched them altogether on my computer. And to my pleasant surprise, it was better than I could have ever imagined!"

Very fine detail & huge resolution means this is perfectly suited for very large applications up to 6m wide, such as printing onto glass for bathroom walls, splashbacks etc - P.O.A.
