Skywatch - Gippsland idyll


Before me and behind me, the glories of a setting summer sun on the rolling hills of the Western Gippsland in Victoria, just outside Bena.

Peaceful and distracting all at once (could close one's eyes, but then one would miss the view).

Oh glorious glow and I'm so lost in the s-curve depth of this beautiful scene - I want to run toward the cows in the field. Beautiful shots - both of them wonderful colors and warmth!

Seems indeed as nature does write the best poetry.
A wonderful Friday for you.

Carolyn said...

It's amazing how much these photos look like Northern California. Lovely afternoon light in them.

Serge Cornillet said...

Good composition in all of the pictures, I prefer the second one because the colours are better. In the first one the ligh is missing but I like the effect of the sun.
Bye.

Beautiful photos, you have really managed to capture the essance of the countryside.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Now what was that about needing a lens transplant to do countryside? A beautiful rural scene ... afternoon light seems almost liquid and tangible on days like this.

VioletSky said...

Such intense light in the second one! I love the composition and feel of the first one, with the source of light just off the shot.

I love the softness of the sun on the first photo. That's lovely.

I also did some Internet research and found out why they decided to put the fish weather vane on top of the courthouse.

The top photo is like a dreamy remembrance - so like the place I grew up in northern California, I can smell the hot air and dry grass.

Light and Voices said...

These two images are amazing! These places should be used as a movie background.

Stunning. These are kissed by such a gorgeous light.

Louise said...

The light in both photos is fabulous, as the composition. They should be paintings.
