nice one, looks just like the rolling hills around here in Gippsland, except there is less grass - less feed in the paddocks and its all brown. We desperately need rain.

ye we are normally the same but we have had a wetter than usual summer so there is still a bit of colour around.

:D

For me, the B & W is not my favourite, I like the contrast of the ground and blue skies highlighted by white clouds. Nice job.


Cheers

went for a kayak on a local lake this morning, this was just a shot on the way
Lakes are still full, after a couple of years of good rains, but its been lacking in the last few month. We are getting a lot of 30-35 degree days, fortunately its cooling down to about 15C at night.

You have more gum trees than us :D

It's holding nicely at 28-30 here but not dropping below 18 until around 4am ! :|

Those pictures are amazing! :D I love the simplicity of them and there's something about the second one with the lone tree that appeals to me. It's kind of sad but signifies survival too.

Nice set. I prefer Nos. 1 and 3 because of the sky (the combination of the cloud with the blue sky) whereas I like the lone tree in No. 2, but the sky is not so good.
I quite like the B&W version, but prefer stronger contrast in the sky, I make the blue sky almost black to contrast with the clouds.

Great shots! There's something I really like about the third one's composition, although the colors are not so strong as in the 1st and 2nd ones. Good job :)
