Recently, I was fortunate to go hot air ballooning during the Canberra Balloon Festival (a gift from my thoughtful wife). It was a fabulous experience, and I was able to take a fairly large collection of images. The flight was early in the morning, and as we drifted over the fields below, what constantly struck me were the wonderful lines, patterns and shadows evident in the strong cross-lighting of the morning sun.
Later, when looking through the images to do some editing, I felt strongly that many of the images would look great in monochrome, because it would emphasise the strong pattern of lines, shadows and textures. I have created a new gallery of images under the "Projects" menu above, where you can see the full collection of images that make up the "From Above" project.
