The beginnings of Autumn

Pretty much the only row of coloured trees in Tenterfield we could find that were remotely photogenic. Should be a completely different matter in a few weeks when the big tree avenues change colour.

    I love the sky colours when you get inland a bit.
    Must get out for some early stuff around here as it cools too.
    Nice shot David.

    It's the road marked "Tourist Drive 9" (before it goes dirt). ;-)
    Yeah, winter skies are typically the best for colour, but autumn has a higher chance of puffy white clouds :)

    Looks nice Dave. I'm half tempted to head down over Easter, but will probably wait a little while to avoid the crowds as planned.

    Yeah Easter might be a little chaotic.

    whats your secret to shooting in daylight? you always have brilliant shots during the day. i find that mine always seem to have glare or i'd have to underexpose it

    Firstly, lens hood, then polariser, then exposure compensation as required to not blow highlights :)
    Thanks - the clouds really played well on that day.
    'tis a bit :)

    There were some Australasian Pipits (or maybe Tawny Grassbirds) amongst the rocks on the tourist drive, but I had the 17-40 on the camera, and the 400 was in the bag in the back. Parked right next to one and it would have been an awesome shot, but there was no way to get the right lens to shoot it before it flew off.
    Thanks :)
