A Word A Week Photography Challenge: Angle

Urban Forest – this sculpture consists of three nine-meter (29.5 ft) high stacks of bright spinning cubes.  I have displayed two images in both black + white and colour as both sets have a different impact on the eye.    The shadows cast by the on-ground display lights together with passing traffic cast some nice angular … Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

A Word A Week Photography Challenge: Mountains

We reached Mirror Lake after a leisurely thirty minute bicycle ride from the Yosemite Valley Visitor Centre.  It was … Continue reading
