Home sweet home

On, to be in England, now that April's here ... Except, it's downunder in the wintertime! How lush, how green this country can be, it only some rain would fall. You find these little hideaways all over the Adelaide Hills: a large house sitting on a hectare or two (anything up to five acres), behind dense hedges ... the "cottage in the woods" rather than the "cabin," but the principle is the same. The real magic of this image is in the framing and cropping, and later, in the enhancement, which brought up the color and flattened the contrast. The galvanized metal roof was glaring in the sun, overpowering the whole image. Photo by Mel, 2006.
