Gated Burning

This photo was taken in the same area as the last one I shared for this series of challenges.

There’s something… I don’t know… maybe melancholic about this photo. Not sure, but I do know that it doesn’t have to do with the smoke from the field burning. That’s something that seems to just be there, but also has a sense of prominence and focus.

I’m content with how I framed this photo. There’s something that feels Australian about it. Might have to do with how the sunset’s colours work with the landscape, or the tall, seemingly-lonesome power pole. I think the framing also helps to capture a sense of space and distance. The idea of isolation is almost suggested.

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

The theme for this one is “It’s a Wonderful World“.

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

Amy is curating this week’s challenge. Next week Tina is curating.

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    It is a great Australian photo. And the gate is shut. I always remember in Aus. people in the Outback saying: “Shut the bloody gate” !

    Lovely landscape SH – the smoke gives it a very interesting feel.

    • Certainly does.
      I took a few photos featuring the smoke that I may share at some point.
      I’ve spent a fair bit of time in regional Victoria, but never had seen field burning before this drive.

    Nice shot. I like it in zoom mode. Great textures in the grass, the utility lines lead upper left to lower right, and the smoke goes to the right. Nice flow.
