A Drying Field

This was taken at one of the rest areas I stopped at whilst driving back to Sydney.

This is wide and open, yet not expansive. The power pole somehow feels lonesome and the field feels quiet.

It was a cold day and I feel a bit of that comes through in this image, but I didn’t mind. I captured what feels like an Australian scene.

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

The theme for this one is “Cool Colors – Blue and Green“.

Both of those colours are in this photo, but I wanted to include this image due to the absence of green in the field.

There may be more green than what is visible, but at the same time this area looks either like it hasn’t seen much rain as of late or that it doesn’t see regular rainfall. I think that it’s easy to think of this field being greener during wetter times.

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 curated by Tina. Next week Dianne Millard of Rambling Ranger is guest-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.

    I like the composition, with the pole on the left, lots of sky.

    I can see all of the aspects you pointed out SH. While I’ve never thought of a pole as lonely I get exactly what you mean. Well chosen for the week.
