Grazing

A common landscape outside Sydney (except not everyone gets up at dawn to catch that early morning light).

Un paysage ordinaire quand on sort de Sydney (sauf que tout le monde ne se lève pas à l'aube pour capter cette lumière-là...)

Tu fais bien d'être matinale car la lumière est magnifique et ta photo aussi !

I like your "A common landscape outside Sydney".
It is indeed.
But I bet it's not in overseas people mind.
Good catch Nathalie.
May it break to pieces the surf-sun-and-sand simplistic common image of multiple assets Sydney.

Reminiscent of the [I think] Hans Heysen paintings once common in every primary school. The Catholic schools had Mary, the State schools had Hans. Sadly, as populations soar, scenes like this become rarer.

dawn and dusk are always the photographer's friend. What an idyllic scene you've captured today!
Enjoy your weekend...

I love the feel of early morning and all the sounds and smells that share the day.

Les vaches devant donnent vraiment de la profondeur aux paysage. Des tons fantastiques!

J'adore cette photo :)

Un grand bravo pour ce blog. Les photos sont exceptionnelles.
Je retrouve des quartiers et des atmosphères de Sydney que j'adore, et que j'aurais adoré "capturer" en click, si j'avais eu ton talent.
Cela meriterait une expo photo en France lorsque tu reviendras.

Really nice. Looks like the Africa's great savannas!
Mornings are magical, wish I wasn't that lazy...

Très belle photo, je n'ai pas votre courage, je n'arrive pas à me lever si tôt pour aller voir les vaches brouter dans les prés.

As "bv" said, this does not at all fit to my ideas of a Sydney surrounding landscape, but obviously it is "common".

You really feel the atmosphere of the morning hour with the haze, the light...

Maybe the trees are slightly different, but somehow this could be taken at a lot of places around the world - if you get up early and have the feeling for how to take a photo.

Fine landscape...well worht getting up to capture this.

Reminds me very much of my favourite memories of visits to Australia.

Oh this is very nice. Almost like an old Dutch masterpiece. Nice shot.

Today, the final pictures of the series, "A Day in the Life of a Robin," is online. I couldn't decide which picture to use. I hope you get to see them.

I also think that this could have been a painting hung on a schoolroom wall. One can well smell the cattle and hear the sounds of a cold, early morning in the country.
A photo that one can even smell has that 4th dimension !

6.30am is not so early then...?

Itis a very beautiful photo. A lot of times I also wake up myself me to the dawn to have a best light and a more suggestive atmosphere.

Finally Internet (Because I can have Internet only the weekend and the public holidays), I can visit your blog. This weekend I present Martel in version black and white. I prefer the photographs in b&w and you?
