Resting my tripod precariously close to the edge of this cliff quite frankly scared me half to death. It is something that still challenges me as I can’t stand heights.
For some reason, when I am near the edge I think I am going to forget how to stand in an upright position and tumble over the side. Nonsense I know but try telling me that when I am up there. I just tell myself…. Look through the lens and not over the edge, and imagine the shot you may capture… It may just be worth it.
The day I took this photo I had quite an embarassing and painful experience. Just before taking this shot I was further up the sandhills where I had to step over a very low wire fence.
This photo was taken on a day as an unexpected surprise. I was out with my 3 boys and 2 very good friends and their kids for a fun day, where the kids had horse rides and learnt about the pioneering days.
As we headed off for a pub lunch I spied this lagoon and wandered over for a closer inspection. I excitedly asked my friends if they would mind waiting while I ran and got my tripod out of the car and grabbed a shot. I am so glad I did and that I have such wonderful and understanding friends because this is one of my favourites.
