The Moody Hunter


On the weekend of 12-13 April, 2014, I went away with David Oliver and Peter Eastway — two of Australia's leading photographers — and some friends from the Flickr FOCUS group.

We attended an intense two-day landscape photography workshop with David and Peter, and shot in and around Gresford and Dungog in the picturesque Hunter Valley, both from the ground and from the air on an early-morning helicopter flight.

This image was captured along Bingleburra Road between East Gresford and Dungog.  Some moody skies had been constantly changing the conditions, and we encountered rain.

A few of us headed up for a higher, and different view over the valley.  This view looks south, and on the distant ridges, rain can be seen falling.
