Absence of Fear by Rhana Griffin

As the planets finally aligned, last week saw me in the right place at the right time… with my camera!

I drive past this dam every time I go into town, and at last I captured it in this perfect mood.

    Worth the wait! Absolutely sublime :-)

  • Some things really are worth waiting for Kevin… but 2 and a half years? I think there may have been some laziness on my part ;)

    what can I say – this is perfectin itself. The beauty of photography is that we really start to look at where we live – with or without our camera – we find beauty right in front of our noses that we would otherwise drive past.

  • That is so very true Deb… and the wonderful thing is, my boys seem to be “getting it” too. They will both on occaision point something out to me and go “Mum! That would make a great photo!” I love it when that happens…

    amazing, i would never have made this a BW image. spectacular artistry rhana. :)

  • Thanks so much skinnyman :) When I am processing my images, I generally check them out in black and white just for curiosity. In this case B&W did more justice to the contours of the land than colour.
