The Capertee Valley, just west of the Blue Mountains, is vast and spectacular. In the valley, at the small village of Glen Davis you can find the remains of an old shale mine and in the grounds are a couple of lovely old houses perfect for a weekend away. At certain times of the year you will be delighted when gorgeous mists appear and hug the scenery.
It was on one such weekend that I had the chance to wander around in the mist with my camera looking for inspiration and knowing that I would find something. On days like this I know I can make magic with my camera. It’s a wonderful feeling.
This old tree has probably been there for generations and with autumn in the air and mist hanging around, it made the perfect subject.
I used a lensbaby lens to create a soft image and then had fun on my computer creating something beautiful that I could frame to hang on a wall.
This is one of my favourite images that frames beautifully as a either a small print for that perfect spot or as a larger art piece as a feature in a room.
