Australia is known, especially to those that live there, as a land of extremes.
Australia is a beautiful country in ways that are very different to kinder climates. This harshness, this ruggedness, this unforgiving landscape is a part of me, and in turn, merely existing within it as a visual artist has influenced my style and the very way I see the world around me. Many of my images, like my This Parched Land series and drought images, attempt to visually portray this.
Last Friday I went to Yarra Glen with =Sadandal and her wonderful daughters, *CircuitDruid and *ragnarok-leaves-none. We had a great day out photographing on the Yarra River and at Yering Station Winery. This is the image I took at Yering Station, from the walkway between the Visitors' Centre and the Administration Building:
