Distant Rainfall

This photo was taken from a lookout of which I can’t quite remember the name of. I can confirm it was west of Sydney, however.

What I really like about this photo is how there’s a large amount of space that almost feels obstructed by the rainfall visible in the distance.

I also like the sense of calmness to some parts of the photo. It might come from the sense of space. There’s quite a lot of development here, but the area still feels less cramped than more urban areas.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-fortieth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “A Change of Scenery“. Whilst similar to some of the other photos I’ve recently shared, this is a change of scenery for me. It’s less urban and more rural than Sydney. Despite there being a highway in the photo, it’s also a scene much calmer in feel than most of Sydney.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This week’s challenge is guest-curated by Beth of Wandering Dawgs. Next week Patti is curating.

The challenges are pretty fun and there’s a lot of room for interpretation that doesn’t get in the way of enjoyment. If you’re into photography, then I suggest participating, or at the least checking out what other people are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

  1. This image is so peaceful and I get a sense of quiet even knowing a storm is coming. It makes me want to sit and watch the rain. Great interpretation of the theme. Thank your for participating in the challenge.

  4. That great photo is certainly a timely reminder of how bad it is in and around Sydney right now.

    I like it. The highway leads up the right side. The lines of houses horizontal along the bottom. The rain and cloud obscuring the center. Nice.
