This picture was taken looking inland from a lovely beach. Wales has its own brand of scenic beauty; you can actually bathe in the sea, and look at scenery like this. Dunes and sea grasses make incredible studies in shape and line, and sunlight dances in patches through the clouds that caress the hilltops. It is not a country to visit if you are in a hurry!It's kind to share!
The theme for the photo gallery here is ‘Hands.’ This shot was taken just outside Harlech Castle, Wales. You may care to look at another picture taken during the same visit, on my post here, also for a ‘gallery’ theme.
And, in case you’re in any doubt, the music was marvellous!It's kind to share!
I haven’t joined in here recently, for various reasons, but I couldn’t pass this one up, as landscapes are a passion of mine, especially my beloved Derbyshire. This shot, though, is an exception, a view facing roughly Northwards from Harlech, Wales, taken near the castle.It's kind to share!
This picture was taken just outside Harlech Castle, and brings back happy memories of a day trip to the Welsh coast in the early summer of last year. The harp music was beautiful, and I thought the player’s hands made an interesting study!
When any picture includes colour, it is virtually inevitable that the connections and contrasts thus brought into the image will grab the viewer’s attention more than any other feature. Without colour, however, we are drawn to study shape, line, and portrayed texture. This shot was originally taken in colour, and was converted to black and white by desaturation.
Now we notice the angular layout of the path, the grain of the timber, the fluffiness of the clouds, and almost feel the prickliness of the sea grass. Less information is telling us more. I’m not suggesting we give up colour photography, but there is certainly a place for black and white.
