Perfect one day beautiful the next.
The snow was quite localised; nothing in O'Connell, Oberon, some in black springs, and a bit more south of it. Probably still there if you fancy an afternoon drive.
I have taken a heap of photos that I will upload to this blog post as I get the chance. Keep warm :)
Aerial panorama of today's snow fall in the Central West near Black Springs NSW, Australia. You can see another snow storm blowing in from the right which ended the flight short.
What too much? Can't go wrong with a small dirt road covered in snow in a pine forest can you. This panorama is one of my favorites from my little expedition today.
I appreciated the colour in an otherwise white scene. The orange of the decaying timber and bright grass poking through. Decided to go for a shallow depth of field on this one to really draw the eye to the front of the log.
Had to feel for the animals in their frozen fields. I don't think the dam was frozen over but I imagine it was a rather cool drink.
This letterbox caught my eye. Looked like a mini house with the snow settling quite thick on the roof. You can see its actually snowing quite heavy while this shot was taken.
I thought this truck looked like Mater from the Cars movie. You can see up on the hill near the tree are some horses as well.
Loved the lighting on the snow covered pine branch with the dark forest in the background.
No sheep or workers to be seen in this weather....
But names will never hurt me. I like to capture some of the detail as well as the wide landscapes.
Leading lines through the snow. One of my favorites from the trip.
Shooters Hill road in the snow. I like how it looks like the Trees have grass shadows. I guess its because the snow was coming in at an angle? Seems to have cooled off again after a hot weekend.
They were very curious what I was up to. Didn't seem to mind the snow though.
Aerial shot of dirt coloured dam in paddocks of white white snow.
A wattle tree in full spring flower with snow hills in the background. The sun just came through the clouds lighting this up and I couldn't drive past it.
A stitched panorama of a dead tree claimed by the winters snow.
I think this will go nicely with my Spring tree in the canola and my summer tree in the wheat. I'm sure I would have an autumn tree somewhere.
Loved the contrast of the stormy sky against the bright white snow. Can't complain about the leading lines either.
This epic pano is created with 27 vertical images stitched together to make a very wide panorama over 25000px wide.
