An alternative view to the recent Cecil Hill series, rather than de-saturate the frame in this case i have accentuated the natural colour of the cracked dry earth and very recently bulldozed embankment.

Thanks to +Ian Browne for some great feedback on the previous shot which made me revisit a similar shot from the evening.

As with the previous image, this could be mistaken for being out west somewhere, not in the heart of western sydney a mere hour drive (pending traffic chaos) to the beach.

Suggestions, comments and improvements? they are always warmly welcomed!

Western Sydney, probably even classified as the Hawkesbury, all I know is I probably need a passport to go there its so far away

I think its also commonly referred to as the food bowl for sydney, since most of the local fresh produce is grown around this area.

Anyhows, there was a nice fog and some cows hiding in there and some very nice predawn pinks, followed up with a tasty steak sandwich, all that looking at cows made me hungry 🙂
