The drive between Cooma and Nimmitabel in southern NSW is almost like driving through a wasteland. It is 35km of alien like landscape excentuated by drought with no sign of life apart from the grazing sheep and cattle. Strangely enough I am drawn to this area photographically as I guess it typifies traditional Australia and shows off the vastness of this country.
I have driven past this windmill on several occasions and have always been drawn to it however never had the lighting to take advantage of it. On this day everything must have aligned as the clouds in the sky added interest and whilst I was setting up the shot about 100 sheep who I didn’t even know were there decided to walk over and pose for a photo. Although this shot was taken in the mid afternoon sun I think it works due to contrast of the colours in the shot and the subject it depicts.
This is the only panoramic shot I have taken in the past few weeks as I thought a single image wouldn’t do it justice, so I am keen for any feedback. I was reasonably lucky with aligning the sheep between frames but there are probaly 1 or 2 sheep that if zoomed right in may look a tad off.
Thanks for visiting!
