Leanne Cole is a photographer down under. In this post she has some great images of evening light. These images make me want to pack my bags and head to Australia.


I have arrived in the Mallee.  It is great seeing my mum again and I have 3 days to get lots of photos.  I don’t know how many I will get this time.

I went out this evening in Woomelang as the sun was setting.  I was hoping to get some images of a sunset behind the silos and train station, but the sun was setting in a completely different place this time.

I stood in the middle of the road to get this one.  I used the tripod.  The sunset wasn’t that great tonight.  There just weren’t enough clouds around.

I am planning where to go tomorrow.  I am hoping to catch up Marianne again from Tourism Association, and she is picking where we are going this time, so it should be good.

So, till tomorrow.
