Today, pictures from valued commenter FerdfromtheNort.
Sometimes you just need to turn around and see the other way.
Got sunset? Turn around.
Got stained glass? Where does the light go?
Assiniboine River, Winnipeg
Typical sunset shot.
Then you turn around.
Same time, same place – Winnipeg
Yeah. this loads on the tool upside down, but I hope it can be fixed.
Two photos, less than a minute apart.
A Church in southern Poland
A satin table cover. Stained glass. Light. Always look at where the light goes.
This is not a greatly interesting photograph. But it is just as my phone recorded it. No photoshop to get light effects like these.
Mid afternoon sunset. One way is sun and snow with sillouettes.
Step back and look the other way. Totally different photo. To me it does not look nearly as cold.
Thank you so much FerdfromtheNort, do send us more when you can.
Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
One again, to submit pictures: Use the Form or Send an Email
Must disagrees. So much with so little.
eta the branch in the corner perfects it
@OzarkHillbilly: this. The photo was taken with a phone!!
@OzarkHillbilly: I agree with JPL, plus
Damn right it does! Is that rosemary? Exquisite texture.
I like the one with the human bundled up in the parka and the dogs running around in their bare feet all happy.
It’s always about the light. I love the silhouette shot in particular, though I’m happy not to be there.
I love your photos.
Just a couple of notes.
To introduce the Pack:
Big white dog – Angnaq (Inuktitut for Girl)
Furry shorter tail – Sarai (died last month, rescue dog, see earlier photo collection)
Middle dog (not seen in last photo) – Pransr (kid who named him really bad at spelling), rescue dog and pure DAWG
And of course the wife.
Second, The satin cover photo is actually up-side down as shown. So it goes…
Beautiful shots, and what great reminders — Follow the light. Turn around.
Alternative Fax, a hip hop artist from Idaho
Great advice to both look where the light goes and turn around.
Thanks so much for the beauty, FFTN
