Today’s photographs are a series taken on Armidale’s creeklands. There is a reasonable amount of water present, although the rate of flow is a mere trickle. This series illustrates the different images obtainable by varying the viewpoint only slightly, both laterally and vertically.
A wide view with the sides framed by the seating on the left, and the willow tree on the right. The lines lead our eyes to the centre of the image.
Moving my viewpoint to the right of the willow tree, and zooming in on the area to the left of the old bath-house, gives a pond-like appearance with a duck swimming in the centre.
Zooming out from the same viewpoint uses the hanging willow branches left and top, and the old bath-house on the right to frame the image. The focus moves to the water in the foreground, and the reflection of the clouds in the water.
By dropping the viewpoint vertically, roughly to the level of the water, the weir becomes evident and explains why such a large amount of water can be seen yet have almost little water flow.
