Lake Conjola in Black and White

I was in Lake Conjola, a few hours drive from Sydney for  a long road trip. This place is pretty busy during summer and very family friendly. My sister was with a few other families from Sydney to have a short vacation before Christmas and Boxing Day.

It took us 4-5 hours to drive from Sydney to Lake Conjola. It was the distance was that long but we photographers and if you just simply take the highway you're miss out on the photo opportunities. So whenever we saw a sign to some destination we never been to before we simply dropped by and have a look.

The drive to Lake Conjola was two and half hours but we end up took 5 hours to get to Lake Conjola. I didn't get much photo opportunities during my two nights at there and the last day I woke up early to get some photos of the lake. The sun didn't show up but I managed to get a few long exposure shots in.

The boat in the foreground is blurry because of the motion with long exposure. It shows some dynamic and life into the shots. Do we need to see sharp image everytime? I could have shot the boat by itself and blend the boat in for a sharp image in Photoshop. That's a tip there if you want a sharp image from foreground to background and still maintain a long exposure feel to it.
