Just beyond the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, lies Hartley Vale.
We were staying at a "farm retreat" for a weekend, and I got up early one morning to explore the light and see if I could find anything that appealed photographically. I barely had to walk 50 metres before I stumbled on this composition.
For the technically inclined, the strong morning light was quite contrasty, so N-1 development was given to the film to tame the contrast.
