Rural Tranquility

Southern Tablelands, New South Wales, Australia

Photographing rural and country scenes always feels challenging yet intimately rewarding. Challenging, as I want to capture the serenity and calm I feel being away from the hustle and bustle of city life yet photographs often don't convey what I feel. Rewarding when patience is repaid and the elements come together at the right time for a photograph that conveys the sense of freedom and space that comes from being surrounded by the beauty of the rural Australian landscape. As I stood waiting in the cool of this spring morning I couldn't help but feel a sense of relaxation as the sun rose and the first light hit the surrounding hills and the grass in the foreground before me. Earlier as I walked up this hill, I passed a wombat and kangaroos grazing, a truly Australian rural experience on this country property.
