Imagining Past Confinement

Being confined to the house on doctor’s orders has led to a continuation of meandering through photographs from recent holidays, a sort of remembering when, as well as sorting for the archives. Naturally, being forced to be inside has made landscape pictures all the more appealing to me at the moment.

This one was shot towards the end of the pre-dawn. A period that landscape photographers talk about as one of the golden hours of the day (it in fact only lasts about 20minutes in OZ) when the light is even, which makes the shadows soft, ensuring both the sky and land are devoid of harsh contrasts.

As you can see, this time of day is perfect for quiet images with soft, muted colours.
