About Volcanic Cathedral
There is something captivating about photographing in a vertical panoramic format. It leads the viewer into the frame. It is as if you are walking into the scene itself. As I was boulder-hopping – trying to find the right composition – I wanted to teleport the viewer into this scene. I setup my camera at an awkward spot, fixing my tripod legs in between slippery boulders. It was a balancing act. A small slip and myself and equipment would end up in the river’s ice-cold water. Once convinced that my tripod would not end up tipping over, I started playing around with the settings of my camera. On top of that, the sky above me kept changing every few minutes. Fast moving clouds kept changing the light balance, which can ruin or make your photograph.
I was very happy with this particular image. It ended up capturing the true essence of this striking gully, which ends abruptly into a wall of prominent lava columns. It is a scene I had never come across before, and I feel blessed being able to add it to my gallery collection.
