Breaking the cold by Dee-T Breaking the cold by Dee-T
Kuitpo Forest
South Australia

This location is about 45 minutes south of the CBD of Adelaide. The forestry industry has a balance going between reviving and maintaing forst and its logging. In the forested areas, the open access makes it a great place to try taking those sun ray shots in the early morning - sadly no fog that morning but smoke from campfires made for a decent substitute. Due to the lighting contrasts, Marianne ( ~marianne-lim )and I took a lot of bracketed shots that morning such as this one.

I so love this!  I can hear the birds singing and the warm rays of sun.  If you wouldn't have said it wasn't fog, I wouldn't have known.  As soon as you said it was from campfires, I could smell the smoke! Lol!

from where the viewer stands within the shadow,
from behind those few still shadowed trees,
one can feel the morning chill,
and catch a whiff of lingering smoke
provided by the hidden morning fires.
is it enchantment which one feels,
bolstered by one's tingling senses?
