My take on a classic shot

What is it that draws us to fields filled with hay bales !!..I’ve seen this type of shot many times and found my self wanting to try my version They are very evocative, definitely…strange !!

And guess what….no 3×1 crop !!….Hhmm…I wonder what it would look like !… :-))

Lol…!!..ok…I’ve got to be honest..I prefer the pano crop version so I changed it… :-)

Taken in Oldbury, WA, Australia

Nikon D90
Sigma 10-20mm @ 10mm
ISO 100
Exp 1.6 secs
Hitech 0.9 GND filter soft

Appreciating and capturing light is the cornerstone to my photography. combine this with the beauty of our Western Australian beaches and rocky coastline and you have something that should be both witnessed, captured and shared.

I hope I can inspire you to take the time to see a sunrise or sunset, on a coast or a rocky outcrop somewhere, and then maybe you can understand why for me, Photography has become a passion……
