Some days are just best to stay indoors and Sunday 19thAugust was one of those days, especially if you are a keen photographer! We took a short morning drive on this day to see if there were any good landscape spots to photograph. Unfortunately, the predicted looming bad weather followed us and eventually after some hail, snow and rainfall, we decided to head back home and do our photography adventure – on a better day. I did manage to capture this photograph though (featured above) at a spot in Baynton, a small rural community, central Victoria – Australia and near the Bourke and Wills track. Here, the sheep had made their way up towards the top of the hill, after they had spotted our car pull-up beside their lush green grazing pasture. I managed to take this photograph seated within the car, through the passenger’s window as the weather conditions were just too dismal to be standing out in the elements!
PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED
During this landscape photography exercise – I used a compact system camera, a Sony A7 Mark II – Full Frame with a Sony A FE24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Lens. For this photograph – I used the camera hand-held as I took it from inside our car through the open car window. I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.
On my return home, I downloaded and developed the photograph into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC. During the process of developing it I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.
Being out-and-about experiencing the natural wonders of the world really does rejuvenate the body and soul – even if the weather is dreadful! Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!
