This has been a dream shot for us for as long as we can remember! When it comes to Astrophotography, we like to challenge ourselves & find composition or subject that is the primary subject matter, and the Milky Way compliments the shot. This is something we’d never seen done before & thought it would make for a very iconic 'Outback/Country Australia' image.
We had planned this image for months & arranged to teach an Astrophotography Workshop while we shot here, but on the day before we headed out west, our dear friend & photographer was hospitilazed. So we decided to still head out that way with our students in hope we might capture something on our travels. To our absolute shock, we saw this Combine Harvester in a field cutting for grain & square bails. We slammed on our brakes & headed over & asked the farmers if we could take some astro photos (they probably thought we were bat crazy at the time lol) as this was a bucket list photo for us!
With their permission we headed back there with @King Photography & @MJ & DK Photography when Murray & James finished up around 9pm. They were so helpful they even parked the John Deere 9610 Combine Harvester right where we needed it in the field for the perfect composition. Much to our surprise, were were even greeted by a Thunderstorm rumbling in the distance over Toowoomba (the orange light behind the comb of the harvester). Things just couldn’t get any better! We even had the farmers families come out & watch us in action while we snapped away & shared a cold beer under the stars. This is a night we will never forget!!!
