Streeton painted this panoramic work of a parched summer landscape from the heights of Mount Macedon, and captured the haze from the heat rising from the plains below.
At this time, early February 1907, Streeton was a guest of the Pinschof family and was staying at their country residence, Hohewarte, on Mount Macedon.
This work was exhibited in Paris in 1909, and was awarded a bronze medal at the Societe des Artistes Francais exhibition.
