#ShortWrytz – Intricate Outlines

Words for photographs I’ve taken…

Winter offers the photographer a challenge – to be creative with what little colour there is…

One way around this is to look for the most contrast to be found. In this shot, taken on a walk in the mid-afternoon, the pale sun was already falling towards the horizon, filling the shadows with a rich, inky darkness. Lovely!

I walked for a while until this scene was framed against the diminishing afternoon sun. It’s not always easy to say why something ‘works’ – it just does…

Intricate nature in all her glory. Withdrawn, but with the forms of growth bare for us all to see and marvel at. And the fence and gate provided a nice counterpoint; suggesting that, for all our love of straight lines, the eye, at least, can play the two together.

  1. I agree Steve. gorgeous shot that by the way. Winter makes you more sensitive to the fall of light and colour, finding it where you can in brief snatches or in the most intimate of details. Taken at large, it can all too often seem bleak, the light flat, the contrasts poor, everything blurred into one. One of the reasons I’ve always loved photography is how it encourages you to look at things differently.
