Sometimes it is important to go back over old work and look at it with fresh eyes. In this case, what caught my attention was the simple wooden structure against the early evening sky. It was a pleasant enough picture but I was feeling creative so I have played with it…The sky now a deep mass of indigo/pink and purple and the simple white building bathed in a pink glow…
I like the effect. It feels like a light beacon / a pink symbol of safe harbour against the darkness threatening overhead.
It was the strangest sunset. The sky was pale blue still with low dark stormy clouds on the horizon. And just at that one clear place where the sky meets the sea…there was a tiny thin sliver of brilliant red – one red thin line. My image blurs the effect to a certain extent, but I like the effect regardless…the shifting light, the land, sea and sky shapes, the hint of the magical.
The early evening just before dusk really turns to nightfall, when the sky seems to be a mix of the palest colours and the darkest clouds and when city lights glimmer and glisten in the water, but it isn’t really dark yet… this is my favourite time of day.
While continuing with the travel theme…the Sydney harbour area, its waters and the bridge (of course!) were found to be quite beautiful, especially in that magic moment when daylight turns to dark.
