A Bit Odd


I'm so used to getting in close to my photography subjects that taking and putting up a photo like this feels rather strange and uncomfortable.

There was really nothing interesting or exciting for a close-up shot yesterday on my photo walk. I was, however, absolutely excited by the light when I saw the above scene through a fence. I'm not so sure whether this photo does really justice to what I had seen with my eyes, but maybe it's only a matter of getting used to it.

I'm off to link this up to Lisa's Creative Exchange and see what's up there already!

Have a wonderful week!

Every reason to be delighted by this: the light streams through in the lightbox.I'd be delighted to have taken this. Sorry, I put too much -light- in this comment. Didn't mean to :-)

Hey Rosie- You rocked it out. I would definitely have taken that photo as well. Anything in good light is a good shot. This is lovely. Wishing you happy Thanksgiving.

I think I am just like you! I feel way more comfortable taking close ups.. I promised myself I was going to try to take more landscape shots.. We will see.. I think your photo is beautiful. You have captured the sun perfectly!!

Hugs, Linda

I love what you've done here, Rosie. You are right -- the light just illuminates the grass seed heads. :)

Anna said...

I think that you captured the sparkling light beautifully! Very nice composition and DOF, also! It would be nice to see this shot in a larger format.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Rosie, I feel the same way about my shots; if it's not up close and personal I feel like I don't have a connection to it. I'm trying to take more landscapes but it's hard because the urge to get close is so strong. I love what you captured here, though. The way the light is bathing those fronds is incredible.
