Well, I hope you have all been having better luck photographically than I have lately! It seems that on the rare occasions that I get out & about lately, conditions conspire against me!
Anyway, this is another one from my last trip to Tasmania. Generally I don’t bother shooting Mt Roland during the middle part of the day, the flat frontal lighting just doesn’t do it justice. On this particular day I had a couple of hours to kill so I tossed a coin to decide whether to sit in a café or see if I could scout out any new angles that I hadn’t noticed before. Scouting won. Driving down one of the backroads in the area I saw that it looked like a storm was brewing over the highlands which was looking kind of interesting.
The farming implement was about the only interesting foreground that I could find so I set up and waited to see what might happen.
The storm clouds added some interest and drama to the mountain that would not normally be there and they dissipated shortly after this image was taken. If I had been sitting in a café as I was thinking of doing, I would have missed it!
Hope you all have a safe & Happy Xmas and New Year!
