The hidden West
This past weekend I spent some time around the Bathurst/Orange area. I was able to come across a pretty amazing place right on sunrise, followed by a few killer locations close by.
It's always rewarding finding a place which I haven't seen before. Breaking away from chasing other photographers shots and simply getting lost can lead to some spectacular shots.
I followed a road I found which took me to a wind farm. Setting my sights on shooting these enormous structures, the dirt road took me over a bridge and around some corners. The lake in the early morning was full of a thin sheet of mist. As the sun rise, the mist became golden and a small little island made for some amazing images.
Following this spot, within a few kilometres was small patches of yellow trees filled with vibrance. Placed around roads and barns, I soon had spent over an hour in drone flying time to capture these. After a few hours, it was time to take what I had and run with it.
Often times it's great to break away from the norm and just see where a road leads. Keep an eye on your fuel and drive. You may come away with nothing, but it only makes the time you find something amazing more worth while.
Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments, i'd love to hear from you!
