Well after Jamie’s turned around and referred to me as “Mr Stirling”, I thought i’d best pump out a post from my beloved Stirlings. This is an image quite similar to others, with the harvested crops leading towards the hills. But as usual with me it’s got a twist- that being that this isn’t Bluff Knoll. Just about every image like this contains that peak- so here I am giving Mt Trio some love too.
If you’re wondering where the title came from, the story will fill you in on that. This image was lucky that I got it, but it wasn’t a case of me driving down the road, to just happen to see it there. I sure earned it. The evening before I climbed Mt Trio late in the day to try for some nice sunset photos, something that unfortunately didn’t eventuate due to an amazingly thick band of haze on the horizon. Which literally shut out all light about 15min earlier then normal!
Anyway I climbed the peak, and while I was up there I noticed this field far below me, and thought what a good place for a shoot the following morning. So I tried to make note of the side roads that led to it, and then the following morning tried to navigate there in the dark. I got there in the end surprisingly easily 🙂 The hardest part was actually standing in the field while mozzie’s nipped away at me in crazy fashion! haha. I waited for the light, which once lifted above the ground lit up the stubble beautifully. So when it’s all said and done, if I didn’t trek up the peak late the day before, this shot would never have come about.
This is the sunset from on top of the peak anyway. Not the best as you can see due to the thick haze. A bit unfortunate, but then as you can see here, it also created a pretty unusual effect the other direction, with the haze causing some intense colours, and then Mt Trio casting a shadow into the sky itself.
