The Countryside

by Kristi Hines · Australia


One thing that I liked about Australia was the familiar feeling of the countryside. Some parts reminded me of driving through rural Mississippi. And then there were scenes like this one that just made me have to jump out on the side of the road to capture the moment.

It’s a beautiful safari-like scene! Wish there were places like this in my city

I keep wishing one of the animals had their head up. The way their heads are all down and eating actually helps to establish an official subject to me though – the cool Australian tree! There are a number of things happening in this image that are great.
