Country Roads... Country Skies...



Heading north from the city into an area known as the Clare Valley

I'm always facinated to see how quickly the land scape changes
30 minutes up the highway and it opens out onto
low ranges ... brown fields and beautiful blue country skies
I hope I have captured this for you.
Not the rule of thirds I know ... but it's all about the skies!



~ Wheat stubble on recently harvested paddocks ~

although the area looks dry and barren it is actually
one of our state's  richest crop farming commumities

The blue sky and silky clouds are gorgeous over the brown fields. Really nice!

Big country, big skies, how true Dianne. Beautiful scene in the first shot and you can see why folk might get the wrong impression about the paddocks, but I bet they've just brought in a bumper crop!

A lovely Autumnal shot from your part of the world :)

Big sky country ... I love it.

Valerie said...

Both great shots Dianne - definitely shows Australia's wide open spaces and interesting cloud formations. Wonderful colour contrasts in the second shot, and the "texture" of the top paddock an added highlight.

Hi Dianne,

I love the pretty blue sky and the white silken clouds, with the golden wheat field below.
Have a wonderful weekend

The big sky in your photo reminds me a little of the prairie regions of Canada where looking up is never boring. “Land of the Living Skies” I believe is on the car license plates in the Province of Saskatchewan. :)

That lovely blue sky with the fluffy clouds compliments the golden coloring of the paddocks.

Beautiful earth tones! The landscape is so pretty. If I could tiptoe and reach for the clouds!

Those beautiful, Clare Valley skies dress the landscape in finery! Gorgeous first photo! And love the close up of the field textures detailing natural art!
