I nabbed the latest cover for 4×4 Australia Magazine – but honestly I didn’t expect my imagery to appear on this issue’s cover.
I should have nailed the perfect cover shot because I had teed up a killer location for a last light photo atop a ridgeline and the evening light was ballistic… but during the day we had km’s to cover and so arrived just atop the ridge exactly on what we had calculated as the perfect shooting time…. hmmm!
I had shot the same location a few weeks earlier and assumed we would have a little more time as we enter longer days but of course the changing angle of the sun messed up my plans and we arrived only minutes too late… the perfect light was two metres off to the side of the road and the road was shaded by some tall trees that two weeks earlier had not affected the photo location.
You win some you lose some.
