Winter In The Hills......


Hahndorf  -  Adelaide Hills

I know the composition of this photo is all wrong
 but it depicts the view I stumbled upon while driving
in the hills  on a cold winter day


The historic old timbered barn sits on the Beerenberg Strawberry Farm
 property and features on the label for Beerenberg products

Dianne It's a great shot of a bloody big gum tree and a very aussie cottage. I like it very much.

I can see why you think the composition is wrong, but I think it works.

This looks really pretty:)

I keep forgetting it's winter 'down under'. Your winter does look suspiciously like our spring though...! Nice photo.

Jack said...

It is a nice scene. If you followed the rules of composition too strictly, that would in time become boring. You like it, click.

The composition's not wrong it's individual!

It's a beautiful photo, Dianne. Look at all that lovely green grass, and no snow, or ice, or fog, or hail, or sleet. :o)

I'm feeling a lot better about having posted this photo now - you're all such talented photographers - I tend to just snap what I like - sometimes that works sometimes not!

Rules are for breaking. Most of the time you try and stick to them but if you like it and its the only chance you've got for a shot - take it.

I think it works quite well!

It's a typically Australian winter picture! Here it's supposed to be summer but it looks like autumn with an occasional sunny day.
Have a great weekend.

I love old tumble down barns and sheds. They make good photos. We'll be in Hahndorf later this year but I hope it has warmed up.

What a lovely day in winter!

Wrong composition would be lost on me. But I really like the shot... the tree is so dominant. And the barn has so much history. Lots of stories to tell I bet.

I love this photo, very Australian. Love the rich greens and blues. Hahndorf is such a lovely area, would love to visit it again one day.

I agree with Mark... it's a view worth sharing. Lovely! And the kind of winter I could handle...
