Leanne Cole Monochrome Madness weekly journey into the world of Black and White is something worth exploring. This was a themed week, and the theme was “shadow(s)”.
Before I go proceed, I had submitted three other photos since my last post (four weeks ago) Here they are; two you know from previous posts and one is a new version of a previous photo.
I struggled a bit with the “shadow(s)” theme . . . I considered going out to shoot something specifically for it, but then I decided I should be able to use stuff I already have.
I first looked at THIS post for inspiration. Specifically, these photos . . .
“How do those depict shadows?” you ask.
Well, if you take the negative image of the photos . . .
. . . one could sell them as depicting shadow or shadows.
I eventually narrowed it down to two shots from the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire Recap POST.
These are the color photographs . . .
. . . the first one shows a smoke dragon; that was shot from about four miles away.
The second photo is one of the photos that make up this panorama (shot from about 16 miles away)
I thought the smoke dragon was the better of the two even though, as far as sheer awesomeness goes, the second view was far more impressive, at least in person. It’s just that the photo does not do justice to the massiveness and darkness of the smoke cloud.
Anyway, if you are into photography, you should really follow Leanne’s site and read her articles.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
