First time Photographing Glasshouse Mountains

June 14, 2014  •  2 Comments

Last Saturday I got up early and headed to Wild Horse lookout. I had been researching online and thought this was a good place to start. I was up there before sunrise and was hoping to capture first light shining on the mountains. 

While waiting for the sun to come up I managed to take this image of the Bruce Highway

Eventually the Sun came out and I was able to get the images I was after. I was really wanting more clouds behind the Mountains to add a bit more interest but you can only work with what you have.

The Glasshouse Mountains have the potential of some great images and I feel this definitely wont be the last time I will be there to take pictures 

Till next time.

Beautiful pics! I live near Wild horse and Tibrogargan. Was wondering if I could get a HD copy of Mt Tibrogargan to do a painting from?
