Traveling in the Australian Outback has been something I have always wanted to do. I got my first taste of it in South Australia, where this image was shot. We were driving towards Beltana Station, a fully working sheep and cattle station in the Outback, and having started out early in the morning, the light still had a nice soft glow to it.
We had just pulled into a narrow dirt road, when out of nowhere, a row of emus appeared in the horizon. They walked right in front of the car and I just stood there watching them as they moved hastily like a group of ladies rushing on their morning commute to work. I didn’t click the shutter right away, but I waited until they almost blended into the landscape – that to me was the defining moment for this picture.
