I went to Lake Dumbleyung – a salt lake in Western Australia to shoot the milky way. The water level was lower than expected so only took one of the lake itself (may process that one later). I found the thick mud to be an issue as clung to my legs and I sunk more than half a foot into the muddy surface. A bit problematic when you’re carrying 2 tripods, camera and a heavy pack when scouting.
Around the lake – there are hundreds of dead trees clutching at the sky – so I visualised with the fisheye effect to have the image framed by them.
I had some stitching issues though – I had to re-stitch one of the frames manually as one of the arms of the milky way initially distorted more than I would like – and a small triangle around the edge had to be filled – I think I’ve finally worked out how to fix that.
