Painted Morning

Windmill and farm, South Australia, Australia

As is sometimes the case with landscape photography, I awoke on this morning intending to photograph something totally different to what I ended up photographing. The evening prior I had briefly scouted a location to photograph an old farmhouse, however as the sun rose the sky lit up with great pastel colours over a different farm to what I intended to take a photo of. The sunrise colours created a very painterly backdrop for this windmill as I hurried down the road, arriving with enough time to capture this scene before me that felt like an artist had just painted.
