Mountain Landscapes

  1. A few weeks ago I visited the Glasshouse Mountains, just to the north of Brisbane, Australia. The Glasshouse Mountains are remnants of ancient volcanic activity in the region. Now bear in mind that in Australia when we talk about mountains we're not exactly talking the Himalayas here; the Glasshouse Mountains are only a few hundred metres high and you can climb most of them without too much difficulty. As usual for me it was camera overkill, with the following images taken with my regular Micro 4/3 kit (GH1, E-PL1), as well as my Canon 50D.

    E-PL1 + M Zuiko 17mm f2.8

    Good work Nic....you are too lucky mate living in south east Queeensland.

    I like 11 and 12 the most of the mu43 shots, especially love how the B+W brings out the textures and complexity of the forest terrain in shot 11 where you got the old guy walking.

    From the other gear 13 and 18 really stand out, i think they're both framed beautifully.

  3. Thanks, Joe. It's funny, I'd actually like to try living down your way some time in the future. Grass is always greener, eh? :smile:

    Nic I love the way you took me into the 70's. Some of your photos have the same look as the photos in mum's photo album from her childhood. Black and white one are more like my Grandpa's tho. lol.

    Been past them a few times but never knew you could climb them. Thanks for the heads up:thumb up:


    Really like no. 3 aye

    best,

  5. Yeah mate, most of them have walking tracks, and some have rock faces that you can climb. This particular one that we climbed was Mt Ngungun; only around 250m high and not too difficult. It's best to start fairly early since the track can get busy quickly.

    P.S. That's my mum closest to camera in #3, on her 61st birthday!

    They may not be high, but they are certainly interesting and beautiful.
