Silent Shadows

Had some good luck a few years ago with access to this property. Long story but was a mad rush in the car behind the farmer to get down there before sunset driving into the sun with dust flying everywhere. I literally had 5 minutes of light so was very busy and the heart was racing as I had to run for the last 500m. My wife reckoned that I looked like a 6ft 3 emu running across the plains into the sunset. Apart from my heartbeat, I couldn’t hear a sound as the shadows of the red clan pan grew larger and larger. I came back to the raw files of this shoot to find a compositon that I hadn’t processes with the thought of entering a competition crossing my mind. Whether I enter is another story but processing old images always brings back the memories surrounding the capture of the image in the first place.
