Some more shots on the way to work this morning while testing out my soligor 180mm preset in nasty conditions (overcast, grey, going 100k/m and taking photos behind dirty car window glass). :ugh: I like a challenge, what can I say??



Luckily weather got better as we got out of the village. I swear all you see in Canberra is sun, sun, sun..

WG, you're getting good at those 'drive-by' shots - hope you don't rear-end anyone while squinting thru the viewfinder at a cow

Here's a couple more from Nash Farm taken last March:

Not bad for speed photography, better than some I take with two feet on the ground, you may be creatinga new art form!

Both nice shots Paul, very interesting barn, nice use of the fence.

Cool shot, opposite things together, like the longhorns too, you should have climbed over the fence to get closer

This looks like some beautiful rolling hills to explore. Do you ever stop between home and the destination? Any little towns or back roads?

They won't be using this hay rake for a few more months:

Hi ramseybuckeye,

Thanks for the nice comments. Dunno about creating a new art form! Surely lots of people do the same? C'mon all you tourists out there.... share your speedy photos and stop making me feel all alone!

We drive through the backroads quite often (all dirt) but as to towns, not really. My village only has 1 pub and the petrol station. There's a few other 'villages' which either have a town hall or a petrol station and a sign to mark their place.

I keep on meaning to do drive bys to take more photos, but I live on a big rural property and it's strange. Once I get home I don't have the desire to go out traipsing - there's enough at home on my property to keep me more than occupied. I've become such a homebody since I moved out into the bush. Hard to believe I grew up in the city

There's a big lake area that fills and empties depending on what the weather's like about 20ks from where I live. Every time we drive by I think gee, I should come out here one day to take photos. I've caught a few photographers out there with their tripods though. Actually, I lie. I think it was just the once.

Again, great shot, Jools.

One firmly in the agriculture category. A peaceful day.

Thanks for the nice comments WWIFA

Where you live ain't too shabby either! Check out those cool mountains in the distance! That's one of the things we don't have - big stretches of majestic mountains.

These are very nice, I really like the one with the horse, I think it's because of the road that winds through the scene. I like these better than the last group, did you slow down, or find a big lenspen to clean your windshield?

Nice one Jools, lots of color, hard to miss with those old tractors for me.

I like it, what are they all looking at? Usually at least one cow has to look at the camera, they always seem inquisitive.

truth's out now! didn't realise the others looked *that* dirty..

actually i think the light's just better so less haze etc. not really sure to be honest.

as to slowing down, nah.... hubby's a hoooon when he's driving. *grin*
