This picture won 1st Place, Colour Landscape, at the Cootamundra Show, October 2012.

The beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW showing one of its many moods, with storm clouds gathering over this verdant rural landscape. Once again, this was an opportunistic shot, taken on the way back to Moss Vale after I had delivered a lovely couple to their hideaway in Joadja. Once again, my Sony W350 was in my top pocket, and I just had to stop! The view is looking to the South-East and the Larger View is, I think, worth a look.

Sony W350, 1/320 sec @ f8, ISO 80, FL 4.70mm, Pattern metering, set in Landscape Mode. Cropped to a 2:3 format from the original 4:3 in PSE 3 in order to eliminate some extraneous foreground, so technically, this image has been altered. Thank you Carl Zeiss!

An old photographer and his dog trying to find what turns a photograph into a worthwhile picture. Perhaps try to take a worthwhile photograph in the first place? The digital darkroom is a creative, fascinating place. If only I could learn to use it and the cameras I have to best effect… I love “mucking around”, as you can see!

Now, you know all my stuff is Copyright If you try and pinch any of it, I’ll jump through your screen and rip your bloody arms off!

  • G’day Luda!
    I’m so pleased that you mention the mood, because that is what stopped me to take this picture. Such beautiful cloud formations are a feature of this region. :)george

    heaps cool george – i was actually down your way last weekend. well i think more tablelands, my mate has a farm at taralga. beautiful scenery just like this and had the best time.

  • G’day Dean!
    Come on – you were snapping iguanas on the Pattagonian plateau – or was it somewhere in Nepal? I can never keep track of your International Jetsetting! So glad you like this shot though. Somewhere in my archives, I have a picture or two from the Taralga area, another great part of the region. :)george
