Waking Landscape

This was taken shortly after this photo. The sunlight had started overpowering the clouds… I think. At the very least there was enough to create a glorious display that was akin to sunrise as it was a good few minutes past the event, though maybe it was part of the sunrise…

Anyway, I think this is a nice photo due to how the light is illuminating parts of the landscape whilst also illuminating the clouds. It feels very much like the morning. I also think the bits of visible road help make the landscape feel large and largely untouched. If there was more road visible it’d detrimentally impact the scene’s atmosphere.

I’m going to be sharing a few more photos from this morning and I’ll probably say it in some of those shares too, but I need to stress that this photo does not do the pictured event justice. It was absolutely wonderful in a way that you had to be there for. I was lucky enough to be there at the right time and these photos only capture an idea of what it was like.

This is my submission into the two hundred-and-forty-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. The theme for this one is “Environments“.

Choosing a photo for this challenge was a tough call for me as it was between the below and a photo involving clouds filling a valley. In the end I chose this one due to having more visible land.

The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:

Week 1 – Tina

Week 2 – Patti

Week 3 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 4 – Amy

Week 5 – John Steiner

Week 6 – Sofia Alves

Week 7 – Anne Sandler

Week 8 – Donna

Week 9 – Guest host

Tina is curating this one. The next one is curated by Patti.

The challenges are fun to engage with. The themes are specific enough to keep some focus whilst loose enough to allow room for interpretation. I recommend participating as it’s a fun community to be engaged with and it’s a good way to focus on subject. If you don’t participate, you should still check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.
