Rural Doors on a Gray Dreary Day
My first legitimate doorscursion in over 2 months was a tentative one. I’m not quite brave enough to venture too far from home, mostly for fear of coming across too many people in too close quarters, so these were all found within a 20 minute drive from home.
Not many shots, and these doors are not super-fancy. On the plus side though, I did get out, and it sure felt good 🙂
As much as I love the dramatic glow of golden hour light, cloudy skies can make for diffused even lighting conditions that can produce excellent shots as well. Images with ‘even’ or ‘flat’ lighting let the actual subject speak to us more than the light.
Sometimes this is good and in this case I think it works quite nicely.
Gee was it ever fun to play with framing and foreground elements in composing my shots!
Turning the camera 90 degrees to look at things from a different perspective.
Stepping closer or moving around an obstacle to change the angle of the shot….
I had forgotten how much I enjoy getting out and trying to be creative using simple everyday rural scenery as my canvas.
As you can see, the rich greens of late spring and early summer are filling out the countryside in our part of the world. I find this just enhances that quiet country atmosphere of these shots.
It all reminded me of how much I enjoy this and now that the ice has been broken, so to speak, I’m already looking forward to my next planned outing very soon 🙂
As always your input, comments, and links to your own doors, are always welcome.
