The Air Up There

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” – Dorothea Lange

A fairly sunny day in Oct 2005 when I took this shot somewhere in the wilderness between Werribee and Bacchus Marsh in Victoria, Australia. A straightforward shot. I saw the cloud hovering over the tree while driving and thought this would be a great scene to photograph.

I just took the camera out the car with me  walked closer to the tree and clicked away. I used a 18-70mm f3.5-5.6 at 24mm with aperture opening of 16 on a Nikon D70 camera.  BTW I did use a polarizing filter for this. The original shot had the sky a bit dark blue.
