Five Sundays in May. So for Jude’s 20/20 Photo Challenge we have a final assignment about light. Lots of options this week.
This month's final assignment - Experiment in different weather conditions such as mist or rain, OR take a photograph indoors such as a still life or light entering a room streaming through a window OR experiment in capturing the colour of light.
First I will take you down to our ocean, a 10 minute walk to the end of the street. It is constantly changed by the weather conditions. From wild and stormy, the spray flying from the crest of the waves. To serene and calm as the sun rises bathing it in a golden glow.
These next two photos could’ve been part of another assignment calling for different times of the day. Walk with me to the other end of our street to the Pelican Lake. First at 10-00am on a clear, crisp May morning 2016, with not a breeze to ruffle the water.
Then visit it again at 6-40pm January 2018
The next photo was taken at Roma Street Gardens. A magical place (see it here) that I look forward to visiting again now the covid19 restrictions are lifting.
There are many areas to explore but if you are there on a hot, subtropical day and wander into the fern gully it has a unique atmosphere, shady and cool where water dragons hide among the ferns, a gentle stream trickles through the undergrowth and sprinklers spray a fine mist of water and if you capture the light just right it creates a magic wonderland.
Another place I’m longing to visit is Tweed Art Gallery. (click here to see why I love this place so much) Apart from an ever changing display of art the building is beautiful and set in the amazing Tweed Valley landscape.
Finally to capture the colour of light where better to experience it than in the red centre of this amazing country. Standing in awe in front of the mighty Uluru as the sun goes down. Then to return next day to see the sun rise again.
These 3 photos are taken 15 minutes apart, from 10-15am, 10-30am finally 10-45am
But what most people came to see is the sunset…
That magic moment just before 9-00pm. Then in a blink it is all over in 15 minutes…
But we were lucky the magic is not finished as the day we were there it was the night of the full moon…
Pop over to see what Jude has for this week. Next month it will be ” depth of field”. Now I think that is going to be a real challenge…
