As the days grow shorter and the sun’s path across the sky becomes lower, the shadows grow longer.
We were out on a shortish walk in one of our well-visitied locations and I looked through a small copse of trees as the light flickered in my eyes. It was the shadows that attracted me: splayed out on the lit grass. The light was just on the turn, glowing warmer with every minute. I hid the sun behind a tree and took this shot. For me it sums up the simple beauty of a walk in the approaching dusk.
I converted it to black and white, creating an image that is devoid of warmth, but which accentuates the shades and lines of the colour image. I’ve been searching for the right word to describe the mood it evokes in me – the best I can come up with is elegiac. What feelings does it evoke in you?
