Nicely done James, a very peaceful scene with soft colours to match. I assumed it was taken under a partial moonlight but taking it at dusk is a nice idea to give detail in the foreground without the noise. I like the silvery look of Lake Bellfield. I've had many happy holidays in the Grampians. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Michael, the land exposure was just before sunset and sky was before moonrise according to www.timeanddate.com for 12 Jan 2020 (land 8:43pm, sunset 8:52pm, sky ~9:30, moonrise 10:16pm).

We spent just 2 nights and one day there so a return trip is warranted!

Very nice. Seems to have everything. Scale and colour and a sense of the world turning.

Beautiful. Caught the light perfectly to make for a dramatic and very pleasing result.
