Wild water lilies spring 2022. These wild water lilies grow in a wetland area near my home, they grow here every year. Everything comes to life around this time in this area during the spring rainfall for about four to six weeks then summer comes along and dries the area out for the rest of the year. I’ve enjoyed and will continue to enjoy this cycle of nature every year, have been for 15 years, this is the first time I decided to photograph the lilies, the previous times I didn’t know how to, as in, to capture the experience and not only the image, every time I look at this image it takes me to that place, visually and emotionally…including the mosquitoes. Scanned 8×10 dry plate, hand coated by Lee Lira. Instagram.

    Thrilled to be included in yet another outstanding collection. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity View Camera Australia.

    David, thank you for including one of my images in this exhibition.

    Thanks, yet again, for all your work in putting this online exhibition together and providing so much support and encouragement to the large format photographers. It is inspiring to see the different approaches to this kind of photography. Wouldn’t it be great if more large format photographers in both New Zealand and South Australian participated.

    Hi all , wow great work my favourite is Quiet waters by Janet Naismith.

    I came across this site when researching large format photography as I recently bought my self a 4×5 and going head first in the medium.

      Thank you Dominique, I’m sure Janet will be pleased by your comment.
      There are a good number of photographers in Sydney who use large format cameras. If you send your email address to View Camera Australia via the contact page, I’ll put you on the mailing list.
