#295-365 Something Missing

As it turned out it was his wife, but that wasn't who he was looking for, way off in the distance with such an iconic pose, (That I couldn't resist) as she came up from behind him a minute later, but she asked me not to use the shot with her in it as the wind had played havoc with her hair.

The shot was taken just before we went to lunch at the Pennyfarthing Pub and I was shooting some shots of the Glasshouse Mountains Caldera and he just hove into view and to my mind demanded to be photographed.

But we all know that behind every good man is his wife, even if you can't see her. Nice of him to take that classic pose for you. Well captured.

This is called shoot now and ask questions later. Marvelous scene and more interesting with the man looking for something in the distance.

Marvelous shot of the countryside. Love the color, the distant mountains and the clouds like they are. I like the way you have framed it with the tree on one side and the monolith on the other. This is a classic shot - all things are equal. You need to frame and hang it.

She didn't want to be in the photo because of her hair? I guess it's good that she'd not, or she wouldn't be missing! A caldera, hmm? Cool.
