A Shearing Shed


Those of you that have been following me for a long time will have seen what is in today’s image many times. I’m up at the mallee visiting my mother again and to get my car serviced.

Canon Australia have loaned me the 5D Mark IV with the 16-35mm lens again to get some long exposures and I thought coming up here would give me a good opportunity to take some images with it. So in between the rain I’ve been trying to get out to get some images. It is a very quick trip, just a couple of days,

Yesterday I went to the old shearing shed here and did some long exposures of it. I don’t often get a chance to do them because there tends to be clear skies when I am here.

I played around with the image on my new laptop and used my new Wacom Intuos Pro medium tablet as well. It is a great size and fits into my camera bag well. I usually find it quite frustrating not being able to work on images when I’m away. I have used the tablet a couple of times now and it has been brilliant. Though I suspect the Wacom Mobile StudioPro would be perfect, and I might have to consider getting one in the next couple of years. I will have to start saving.

Here is the image I came up with.

  1. Hi Leanne I know the shed as I made some images of the same shed using my headlights and also if I recall during the daytime. Going soon to do the painted silos when my mate from Ouyen arrives back. Regards Ron

  2. I love the shading and the way the colors blend into one another—effortlessly. Beautiful!

  3. As always, I love the light, a perfect balance from dark to light. Did you tryB&W? I think this image would work either way. Inspirational.
