Anyone who has lived in Australia knows that we have a certain type of green that defines our landscape. It took Europeans decades to actually work out that the bright European greens used for their landscape painting were completely wrong and that we needed more olive tones to capture the Australian bush.
This was a shot I took early in the morning after sleeping without a tent in a little tree lined snuggery as the weather was so mild. The winter had been kind this year and the bush was much more lush than usual.
The view out over the range was spectacular but very hard to do justice to in a picture. For those non-Aussies out there we use the term “Outback Australia” to refer to most of the arid country in the interior. As most of the major towns and cities are close to the coast and face the see, everything else is literally “Out back”.
