Neodigital Art | White skies
We have had lot of rain in the past few weeks and even when it stops the sky is either grey or we have a white sky. In this shot the sky was white and so it reflected white off the water. In some shots, I have white sky, a band of green where the trees are and then another band of white with the water in the foreground. When I took this shot I put some grass in the foreground and broke up the white sky with a tree in the foreground.
I had a similar problem with this canal picture. I’m fascinated by that bridge in the distance, the end seems to go to the top of a wall. There is a very unusual wall on the one side; I must go back when the light is better and investigate.
This is the wall on the one side of the canal. It has a little balcony at the end and look out points along it. I need to go back and take another look and try to figure out what it was used for.
This is what I went there to photograph. The locks are really unusual there.The white sky is broken up a little by the tree and it also gives the picture depth.
Here you can see the two locks, side by side. Locks are for moving the narrow boats from one level to another along the canal. Where the canal goes up a hill there is often a series of locks.
All the colours have changed now and we have deep green trees after the rain. We need some sunshine now because these colours absorb the light rather than reflecting it like the winter colours.
I hope you liked today’s pictures. There are more amazing blogs on the Home Page.
