Neodigital Art | Timing and light

Bannister road 052

The sun was peeking out from behind a dark cloud when I took this photo. You can just about see the way it has lit up the bank on the left side of the picture. It does demonstrate that comes directly from the sun and some is reflected from the sky. The colours are changing now and many of the shadows are much darker.

The sun came out and you can see it’s lit up the bank more and also the sky is a lot brighter, but I still have dark shadows. It’s an interesting location though.

It was even later in the afternoon when I took this shot and the sun was behind me. I was shooting East, but all the good shots were to the South and North where the light wasn’t so good. Those pussy willows are growing where the canal has dried up.

You can see the canal overgrown to the left of this bridge and the water seems really high to the right of the bridge.  I think I will have to go back and take this shot again when the sun is high in the sky. The shadows are interesting, but make for a very dark picture.

I think all these pictures would be better taken when the sun is high in the sky.

  2. Hi Mike, I think the lighting of the first picture enhances the feeling of depth as the shadows seem to be in the background.

    In the image with the pussywillows, I believe I see your shadow! 🙂

    • Hi Carolyn,

      Not sure about that shadow, it was probably Simon, he’s always walking into shots; not he’s getting his shadow in! Those pictures don’t really do justice to the scene.

  3. Great shots Mike, I love the sharpness of the photos and the colors.

    The top photo looks like my granddad’s property. We still own it although he’s been gone for years. It’s now overgrown though but we use to take his pickup truck to the farm and play back there all the time. That’s what they remind me of.

    Memories!!! Great memories.

    • Hi Adrienne,

      I’m glad you like them. I remembered a few things at that canal. I used to go fishing with my dad there as a child. I remembered a train passing as it got dark and the rail track is still in the same place, but now carries the Midland Metro. I’m becoming an expert on local history now, I was even asked for permission to use one photo by the art gallery! 🙂
