SkyWatch *14 Drive by Shooting!

We have just returned rom a trip to the Victorian
highlands. The air was so clear I could not resist
shooting the following trio from the car at 100kmh.
We were in a hurry so could not afford to stop.



The country is just starting to rise towards the
mountains.



...and yes, there was a front welling up.

Thank you dear SkyWath team for mentoring this

  39. These are interesting photos. I like those lonely trees there. They make them quite powerful. And the last photo grabs me. I love its composition - the tree and the shape of the clouds, colours. Magnificent.
