Imagine how much my jaw dropped when John Baldwin, our brilliant Barossa Valley tour guide, brought Nicole S. Young and I to the vehicle that we’d be riding when while taking in the beautiful sights and delicious wines of the Barossa region, outside of Adelaide, Australia. What you see here is the 1962 Daimler DR450 majestic major limousine. At its time, only two were being produced per week and at a total of 100 made. John owns three of them. :)

However, the photographer in me was clearly more excited about the possibilities of using this chariot as my model rather than as my mode of transportation and John was only too happy to accommodate our requests to place the car in various positions along this picturesque vineyard.

If you do find yourself visiting South Australia, especially the Barossa Valley, please consider booking a tour with John. He was one of the loveliest people that I have met and it was astounding just how quickly our 10 hours had flew by together.

In terms of processing
I used a custom split tone in Lightroom’s Develop Module to get this particular look with the highlights and shadows.
