Yesterday I was traveling to collect fireworks for our family’s little New Year display. Something prior had told me to bring my camera gear “as you just never know”. Halfway there my eyes locked onto this scene! whilst passing a small entrance that I’ve easily passed hundreds of times before. Although this time the fog was rolling through the frosty fields almost blanking out the sun’s light, so much that I was able to stare directly into it. What initially drew me in was all these leafless trees, which gently led my eyes up this country lane onto this old giant tree. The suns dampened soft amber light behind this tree cast the most perfect Silhouette.
I guess when I look at my finished photo, I personally visualise myself walking from 2019 up this winding lane into the warm inviting brightness of the New Year ahead. Well those are my thoughts, although I’m sure you may have a different take on it. We all look at photos with a different eye & visualise what is meaningful to ourselves individually. This is the power within photography that I love……
