Beckoning me?

Surely not –

Instant Inspiration: backlit

Marcus  at Streets of Nuremberg’s discussion about backlighting photography inspired me to pick up my camera and walk along a bike path during the golden hour.  He noted that when one photographs into the sun there will be a great glow around the hair and body.

In the first image, there is a bit of glow on the cyclist’s hair and in the trees.  In the second, the glow outlines both the young man and his dog.  The setting sun in both of these images brought out some interesting long shadows.

It is wonderful to follow bloggers such as Marcus who share their skill and knowledge of photography and invite photographers such as I to grow and learn.  Thank you!

autumn with Issa

Before this autumn wind

even the shadows of mountains

shudder and tremble.
