Pilbara Anthills








Here is another image from our Pilbara trip earlier in the week. For the whole stretch of the road leading into Onslow there were these fields and fields of Anthills and really cool clouds streaming overhead.

That made for some great shadows and the final result is what you see above.

Bo and I spent most of last night working up a stitch similar to this that ended up in the bin as the varying light coming from the cloud shadows made it impossible to blend without it looking weird.

We had fun trying out all sorts of tricks but so I guess all was not wasted!

  1. Bloody hell, why did we spent that much time on the stitch when you had this, this is so much better 🙂 We had a lot of fun taking turns in having a go at that stitched pano but ultimately it had so uneven light to begin with that every layer we added made it worse hehe. It was no waste at all, I learned those amazing shortcuts to changing opacity of the brush.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, woohoo.

    • Gotta love those shortcuts mate…and yep this worked out much better! I was hoping the pano was going to work but alas, the single stitch will have to suffice!

  2. Cool arid textures here Markie – I like the tinge of green in there too 🙂

  3. Nice light Mark, Sky maybe a touch to dark ? great effect though.

  4. Bloody awesome image Mark really shows the textures of the Pilbara thats for sure and those clouds yet again :).
