A Walk. March 29, 2008

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

Took a walk today, down a steeply forested slope to a piece of Pelham Brook which isn’t visually accessible from the road. With the right footwear, it was a reasonable enough trek, but had I had on The Wrong Stuff, this little adventure would have ended badly.

But it didn’t, and I got to a place which offered both sunlight and shadow, foreground and distant setting, and motion to complement the stillness of a Spring snow.


I like this shot, in part because of the process of accessing the view, and partly because of the tribulations of setting up my equipment on the icy rocks in the middle of this scene.

I’m happy to say that I did nothing to this image other than to rotate it 90 degrees. The light was right, and that’s really all that matters in a photograph, isn’t it?

Yes, Grasshopper, photography is ALL about the light. Chase it well.

One of the things I love about your photographs is that I feel like I can feel and smell the air of the place. This one is no exception. Well done and thank you.

Let’s print this. I see it hung prominently over the mantle in your foyer.
