Sunlight in Sepia: for Sepia Scenes

Shooting towards the sun caused the strong light to reflect on the water and also created the glistening effect on the trees in the immediate foreground. what I really liked most was the sun lightening the ground at the rocky point under the trees there, making the tree trunks prominently visible. This was an interesting photo experiment with light and I like the way it turned out.

Sepia Scenes is a meme hosted by Mary/the Teach and it offers the opportunity to share with others; beautiful scenes in sepia tones.

One of the things I really like about sepia is how your eye is drawn to things you might not have noticed had the photo been in colour. I think that the strong contrasts in your photo might not have been as successful had you done it in colour!

My Sepia Scenes are here and here.

My instant thought when I saw this was "muddy waters". Then I looked again and I saw liquid milk chocolate. The dark place on the shore beckons the viewer to come discover secrets.

I like the contrasting colors against the snow. Striking!

I love sepia photos and this one is a work of art. Well done Ann.

What a talent you have for capturing beauty and nature in all it's splendour.

This one works for me! I love the different shades of brown in the trees.

I somehow missed your Ruby Tuesday - and hey! That sure is one orange-red sky!

I think the sepia makes it even more interesting than it would be in color.

i thought that's snow.

it's a beautiful one! thanks for sharing.

I definitely recommend enlarging this - it's even more stunning. I don't think the strong sunlight would have worked in color but this is wonderful. Your attention is drawn to the sunlight under the trees.

Snow scenes in sepia gives it a total new perspective which is nice :)

Mar said...

It looks lovely. I am thinking snow right now :)

Just to mention this is not a snow scene. Luckily we have not had any of the white fluffy stuff in our area yet.The whiteness of the river is created by the reflected light of the strong sun.

Incredible! I also thought it was snow until I read the it's water and photo was shot torwards the sun. You did a great job, Ann!

Dianne said...

I too thought it was a dusting of snow.

Ann..I have to add this site to my blog list as I have missed some of your posts. The sepia ones are so interesting. I should try one and see what it looks like. I am glad that you enjoyed my orange tabby cats..

Very nice and I agree the trees really pop when done this way.
