Silent Landscapes - The Pine Forest
As mentioned in my last blog many of the images in my Silent Landscapes collection came from a holiday to Queenstown, while the rest come from 'photo days.' A couple of images came from a day spent exploring the pine forests along Steve Irwin way at the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
Over the years we've become increasingly better with planning photos days. We started out traipsing through the bush in inappropriate shoes (who in their right mind would think thongs or sandals would be fine to bush walk in), minimal water and no food. These days we like to take a picnic along. What we didn't prepare ourselves for was the amount of mosquitoes in the forests!
While these forests are man-made I still found them beautiful in their own right. The photos below have had minimal editing, with a couple straight from the camera.
