Today’s photograph was taken at about 8.30, there was a frost and bright early morning sunlight coming through. It is a panoramic photo sweeping from the rough fields towards Reginald Mitchell Way in Sandyford.
It was a fantastic light and was picking up the frost on the dead grass and weeds, so I have included some more of the pictures I took walking across the field. Light is a hard thing to describe non-visually and cameras don’t pick up the light the eye sees. I am fairly pleased with these pictures as they convey something of the atmosphere of the morning, Turner would have painted it wonderfully. In some ways the interpretation of light through painting is much captures a morning like this much more satisfactorily than a camera; if of course you have the technique.
So I will have to do with these. Most of the pictures are exactly as taken, but a couple needed some manipulation to improve the feeling, just a boost in the depth of colour as the sun was flooding across the lens. These were all taken on my phone.
