Maitland, NSW – LS19
Maitland is a city in the Lower Hunter Valley of New South Wales, Australia and the seat of Maitland City Council, situated on the Hunter River approximately 166 kilometres by road north of Sydney and 35 km north-west of Newcastle.
I visited Maitland for work and when I arrived there before sunset I had a quick drive around the region looking for compositions to photograph. While I was driving down a road, in the distance I saw this tree sitting up on a hill all by itself. I soon realised if I used my telephoto lens I could bring the tree in very close and make it the main subject.
I worked out that the sun was going to rise just to the left of the tree over the hill, and if I timed it correctly I could get a beautiful image. I got up the next morning to shoot the image that was in my mind. I knew there wasn’t going to be a cloud in the sky, but it was the rising sun that was going to make this image work.
When I started firing off some frames I couldn’t believe what I saw on the back of my camera. It looked like a scene from Africa in one of the game reserves. The image turned out a lot better than I had ever dreamed of, and it is one that I am extremely proud of.
