Beautiful photo of tree branches during afterglow near Mildura_Victoria Canon 5D camera and Canon 180mm f3.5 L series lens with Canon 2X Extender. Exposure Details: 1/1000 second @ f7.1 ISO 400.

Mildura is a great place that I’ve had the good fortune to visit several times. I spent the best part of a month there in November and December 2009 as stills photographer on the soon to be released Australian motion picture film Summer Coda.

Today’s image was made during an earlier trip to the region with my good friend, Ashley. We’d undertaken the long drive from Melbourne, but were happy to stop the car on several occasions to photograph.

The silhouette of tree branches against the warm afterglow, following a classic sunset, brought our car to a sudden halt. The tree branches add a strong graphic element that only enhances the intensity of the background color.

Within a few minutes after the camera’s shutter had been tripped our world began to darken and the night followed soon after. We continued our travels for an hour or so until we reached Mildura after a long day’s travel.
