dry to wet I lamington national park, queensland

In this post, rather than another painting or photo-montage, I've included a series of individual shots I took in Lamington National Park in Queensland, Australia - one every 10m, walking from dry scrub into subtropical rainforest (starting with the bottom image).  In this case, the gradient results from geology rather than climate, but it was an opportunity to see how the experience of passing from one into the other might be captured in still photography. (Somehow the idea of filming it doesn't seem as interesting, maybe because I'd prefer to focus on the change occurring between discrete moments.)  I'm not sure what this reveals, other than what you'd expect to see...but I did realize that these gradients are never smooth, so that photos taken at even intervals are unlikely to show a continuously clear progression.
