This is from a shoot in Yea, Victoria (Australia). I was out there with Cas for a day of shooting. We drove for hours, hoping the sun would come out from behind a thick blanket of clouds. Our patience was finally paid off at dusk, with the rolling hills giving us some light and shadow play.

The scene reminded me of a children’s storybook, so off I went to the land of Photoshop…
