Golden contours

Driving around some of the back country dirt roads of southern South Australia I noticed these paddocks and came back later that day as the sun was setting. I do love an old fence post as well and these had heaps of character.

Greener pastures

Just returned from a road trip taking images in the Northern NSW region and came across this scene. Originally trying to capture rainforest images I couldn’t stop looking for scenes to capture the greenist pasture that I’ve ever come across.


Paddock of Gold

Noticed a build up of storm clouds out the back of my place so headed out for a bit of a look. Ended up down a dirt track that I’d never been down before trying to get a good look at a passing storm when I eyeballed this scene and promtly ran across the paddock before the light faded and rain hit

 


The Heavens

This was taken following the storm from the previous post after the main front had passed through. Spotted this little scene and proceeded to wade my way through blackberries to get to a decent spot. Worth it?


Pasture Island

Another scene, pretty much straight out of camera, no need to saturate any of these greens! Insane considering that it is summer on Thurs….


The Last Post

Well for a while anyway, heading up to the top-end and across to the East Kimberly for a short trip. Been a while (13 years) since I was in those parts as a backpacker with $1300 in the bank picking squashes and pulling out paw paw trees, picking up glasses in nightclubs, painting the nightclub during the day and trying to live off $20 day (character building they say)….. and taking photos with a shitty little 35mm instamatic, needless to say this will be a slightly different experience, although some of the places I’ll be heading won’t need money but a decent camera might come in handy.  Massive thanks to my little family for letting me follow my dreams… hopefully one day it will pay off.

The shot below was taken on a different morning to the previous, similar post. Think that I like more.


Nowhere over the rainbow

Taken on a sheep station looking towards the western flank of the Flinders Ranges. Disturbed a large flock of corellas to get this image but on the large file a couple can still be seen in the tree to the right of the windmill.
