Picture Story

Wanarroo Station is a few kms from my home and I often drive past this dam when returning home. This summers evening the sun was setting just behind the hill as I arrived. It was a hectic moment getting out of the car, setting up the tripod and getting the composition in focus. I debated whether to do a portrait or landscape mode shot, so I took both in rapid succession. I preferred the landscape after examining on the computer. At the time of taking, the lens I used had only been in my possession a few weeks and I had not really done much I had been happy with. Its the Pentax 15-30mm F2.8, one of their star (*) lenses. I have since done some asto work as well as many wide angled desert shots, and paired with the Pentax K1 I am most happy with it. This was taken at the height of summer and my biggest concern was disturbing a snake that invariably would live in this swampy vicinity and would usually be active in the evenings. Fortunately no snakes were encountered on this occasion.
