Shady Proximity

Of all the days that we spent in Australia, our time in the Barossa Valley, outside of Adelaide, provided us with the most dramatic and spectacular clouds. While on our unforgettable Daimler tour through the region, we stopped to photograph this lonesome tree. It quickly became apparent that next to the tree were two flocks of sheep, grazing in the field. On most other days, with the sun ferociously beating down on us, we’d see these flocks huddled under the shade of nearby trees. So, it was a treat to get this particular formation in action.

In terms of processing
I’ve been on a very strong Lightroom kick over the past few weeks. More so, I’ve been experimenting a lot with split-toning and this image bears some of the results. All stylization and correct was done in Lightroom 4.3.

    Great image Brian. I am heading there next week and exploring and photographing South Australia. Thanks for a peek into what to expect.

    The best part of South Australia in my opinion, I may be biased as I'm from Adelaide
