A Few Cows and Trees

This was taken when I drove back from Melbourne to Sydney earlier this year during Autumn. The image was taken in the same location as these ones.

I feel as though this would’ve worked better had I not worried about the cow farthest to the left, but I still like that I got it and the bare tree in one shot.

I think there’s a dullness to this image that, combined with the cloud cover out of the frame, helps to make the area feel a little more dry than it might actually be. Still, it was a pretty dry-looking area when I drove through.

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

The theme for this one is “Colors of Autumn“.

I’m not sure as to how traditionally autumn this image appears, but it is an image of this particular area as it appears during autumn. Then again, this area might look a lot like this during most of the year, but there are plenty of areas in Australia that don’t appear much like a traditional autumn during autumn.

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 one is curated by Amy. The next one is curated by Tina. Tina’s theme has been announced in advance, and the theme will be “Seen Better Days”.

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.

    I love how you capture the peacefulness of autumn where you are. It’s very much like the ranches and farmland here in Texas.

    This challenge for autumn is really bringing out some diversity and the landscape photo you shared reminds me of an album cover – or a nice story prompt
    The photo had a different feel for me when I saw it from a auxin glance A the two tall
    trees stand out –
    Then zooming in we see the cows and feel the scale and signs of quiet pasture with life!

    A very pastoral scene SH – one can feel the peacefulness of the landscape and its creatures.

    It’s why I love being in Tas rather than Qld….the change of seasons brings so much to photograph each year. I rather like your composition and would probably have done the same regards that last cow 😉
