Tag Archives: make dull interesting

My Sunday Photo: 20 December 2015

Grass in the WindI took today as something of a photographic challenge; warm, but dull and wet weather persisted. Indeed, the climate over the last week or two has reminded me of that phrase further quantity of ditto so beloved of auctioneers when compiling catalogues. Nothing looked the least bit (ahem) seasonal.
In the local natural scene, there was little of note to observe. Only grass, I thought…
Wait a minute! Yes, grass. Including this tall ornamental kind I spotted nearby. But how do you depict a grey, blustery day in an interesting way?
On impulse, I tried combining natural light with flash, to give a sense of movement with a touch of sparkle. Maybe the best Christmas decorations are alive. We just have to look for them.

It's kind to share!
