Taken not far from my favourite Dudauman Road (near Cootamundra NSW) last night. A winter ‘stubble burn’ had just taken place in this paddock … why the truck was left in this position, I’m not sure but it made a good subject! Colour came and went in the clouds really quickly … it pays to be a patient lurker. Truck image merged with sky from an image slightly to the right.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    worked well rosalie, sometimes its great to take advantage of a burn

  • The smell lingered but there wasn’t much by way of smoke Philip … although I’m sure it affected the colour a bit. It always seems to add something! Found a FABULOUS back road to Gundagai today – one car wide and amazing views (if you can find somewhere to stop!) Thanks for the fav!!
