Australian Landscape Photography

Skies are Burning

Just got back from a trip into outback South Australia, conditions were generally very difficult with abnormally cloudy days and quite a bit of rain. This image was the start of the weather moving in and was quite a challenge to capture due to windy conditions and dynamic range. This shack was the one that features on Midnight Oil Diesel and Dust Album, taken by Ken Duncan.

    Great shot andrew and I can see the challenge in the dynamic rage for sure!

    I think I would be tempted to darken the grass in front of the posts and the posts just a tad…it will separate the foreground a little more from the featured house etc.

  2. Cheers for the suggestion Mark, it is a good one and will do some work on the image before adding it to my website.

  3. Great shot Andy. This would be the first shot I have seen with the fence in it and I recon it works a treat. Saves jumping the fence and sending the owner to go crazy.

  4. Thanks Matt, I generally abide by the owners requests although would have loved to get in a bit closer. I did take another composition the night before with one tripod leg through the fence, but technically my person did not enter the premises! haha

  6. It was Tom, massively tricky shot though, hope that I was able to pull it off.
