Rabaul Altered Landscape




Altered landscape is somewhat of an understatement for this scene stitched around the corner from my previous stitch.

How are the lava and ash lines leading into the bay and into the hot springs on the right hand foreground!

I felt like I had definitely left planet earth through a time warp and landed on another moon somewhere for sure. There was a new shot arpund every corner….hope you like it!

  1. Hey Mark

    Happy New Year!!!

    Great shot if you ask me, I personally would like to see a tad more sky but either way I’m liking this shot nice composition.



    • Thanks Darren Happy New year to you 2 mare!

      In actual fact this shot is really all about the lava lines and when zoomed in they are awesome!

      At 1200 pixels the lines are not prominent enough.



  2. Amazing scene there Mark ! At least nature altered it and not man… πŸ™‚

  3. Hey Mark

  4. Like it Mark! If you imagine this place pre-blast, it is even more powerful!

  5. Love this shot Mark. Amazing contrast to the clear blue water and the devastatingly dramatic landscape. A favourite of mine too!

    • Thanks for the comments boys!

      I have had this one sitting in my desktop for a month or so now….looks like it was worth persevering with eh!

  6. Winner. The best pano from our VVAP volcano expedition for sure! Like I said, really good balanced composition in this one and great lines. Print this one big and give it to Christian, he can shed a tear or two over not going πŸ™‚

  7. Hi Mark, Great image, fantastic contrast between the blue water and the landscape.
