Levitation by Dee-T Levitation by Dee-T
Lake Bonney
South Australia

Along the west bank of Lake Bonney near Pelican point, there is a group of unusual stumps which appear as though they float atop the water's surface. In the predawn gloom, they had an almost ethereal appearance which I tried to capture by allowing light under the stump in the composition. The ensuing sunrise unfortunately fizzled as more cloud built up.

This is still beautiful, fizzled sunrise or not! Print worthy! If you can, you should set it up to sell, I'm sure someone would buy it. Amazing shot....

It never even occurs to me that such things as this exist. Thank you so much for opening my eyes by sharing this. :)

The colors (and timing) and framing of this are just drop-dead gorgeous. Brilliant capture.

Killer shot.  The front tree looks like a floating apparition wondering off into the night.

Did you use a very dark ND filter?

Marsia, this was shot predawn so I didn't need any ND filters for it
