    A slice of life on the land Mieke.

    Not sure how many images you ended up getting but even a small book with your time here would be excellent, fab work indeed.

  • Thank you, John! I think I may have enough for a calendar at least… :)

    Excellent collection of images here Mieke, plenty of atmosphere.

  • Thanks, Terry. We were so fortunate that our workshop leaders had organised this for us – it’s not often you get the opportunity to photograph a muster at sunset like this. We all got some great shots (but we all also got HEAPS of dust spots… even with our plastic covers!!)

    Magic light, like stairs or a terrace facing the camera… off the hill, then off the backs of the cattle, and then ground level. That really is a thousand -word picture, Mieke. Kinda mesmerizing.

  • :) :) :) :) Really glad you like it, Gary. I like the layers too! It’s all about the light really… and when it’s good, you can’t go wrong!
