Yesterday, as I found this gorse bush in full flower, I felt cheered up – it’s a plant I love for its vivid colour. But a photo seemed just very ‘ordinary’ at first. Then I remembered something I often tell other people; lighting is everything. I moved round, and shot almost into the sun, so that some of the colour is from transmitted light (not just reflected light) and the background is much darker. I found the high contrast suited the subject.It's kind to share!
Driving home through the countryside yesterday (14/05/16) I was struck by the sense of open space given by this view, especially after a week of working indoors. The scent, which I sadly can’t give you, only added to the effect. The lone tree (you can just see the top of it in this photo) also seemed symbolic; beauty in solitude is not loneliness, but a stimulus towards positive reflection.It's kind to share!
In landscape photography, I find light is almost everything. A very ordinary view can suddenly become special, if the lighting changes – something that happens very often in England! This shot was taken in the early evening. I had stopped to watch this scene for a few moments, when suddenly the sunlight played the trick I’ve caught here. The whole event was over in seconds.It's kind to share!
Yesterday really felt like spring. This park is near to where my father lives. Just as I was watching these ducks and gulls, someone came by and threw pieces of bread into the air. This was the sudden, and often very funny, result!It's kind to share!
