The other day I headed out to Northam on a covert mission. The mission? It was Melissa and I’s 10th wedding anniversary and she had arranged for us to take a trip on a hot air balloon which I knew about but she had also arranged for a marriage celebrant to join us on the flight so that we could renew our vows at 2500ft.
Unfortunately, for us the weather wasn’t safe enough for us to fly so Melissa and I headed down to the Avon River and renewed our vows down there. It was one of those really nice moments.
The evening before we decided to drive down the Northam – Katrine Rd to see if we could get a sunset photo of something when we came across this old house. It turns out that this place ‘Glenfield’ I believe it is called is often photographed with lots of canola surrounding it but I was more after this dry kind of look, so I achieved the mission. I’ve added a map of where it is in case you guys would like to head out there sometime for a shoot yourselves.
To get this shot I used a single image from my 50mm f/1.2 lens and double processed the raw image for the sky and the foreground and then combined them in Photoshop. All comments are greatly appreciated.
