As a schoolboy boarder, I spent occasional holidays at Hazeldean, a station property in the Monaro, where my best friend James Litchfield lived à I decided to photograph the Monaro à On a summer day when magnificent clouds were gathering, I went to the edge of a shallow lake à a fortunate movement of clouds shadowed the hills while leaving the remaining landscape sunlit.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
