Ranges… or are they….

by on Oct.14, 2016, under Life, Photography

Driving through the farmlands on the way to Coolah I noted lots of interesting possibilities for aerial imagery.

Here Vinegaroy Road comes down off the mountain ridge into the valley where the township of Coolah resides. I had my eye on an area of land next to the road which showed some promise. The ridges and folds in the farmland would I hope might look like epic outback mountain ranges from the air.

I wasn’t really expecting to do much daytime landscaping work with the “real” camera. However I was hoping to take the drone out for a spin to capture more in a series of aerial top down landscapes that I’m working on. These pieces are destined for a portfolio and potential future exhibition. I’ll write more about this project in a separate future post.

After we’d arrived and settled in I headed back out to see if I could capture some images. Unfortunately it was extremely windy and threatening rain so I only managed a quick flight before being forced to return.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
