I’ve been reflecting on 2018, and this image was one of the first from last year.
Over the next few weeks I’ll post more images from 2018 and a little bit about each one.
This photograph was taken near Canberra and the Murrumbidgee river in January 2018 about an hour after sunrise. Any earlier and the sun wouldn’t be high enough to light up the valley, if it was much later the shadowing would be gone. It took a while to find a composition I liked on the steep hillside of this paddock, a little way up from the road.
The foreground was close, so two images were combined, one focused on the foreground and another the middle distance, otherwise the processing is minimal. It was captured with a Sigma Quattro DP0, a strange little camera with a wide angle lens.
