...the multiple greys of a seemingly doomed day or crystal white iced grass under a long slow warming blue sky.
This is the time of year I love in the Manawatu, it seems the more layers I put on to go out into a day to photograph the more nature strips off. (I think summer at Foxton beach must cause the black sands to laugh gently at the almost naked humans lying on them... at least for them their impression is washed away come each high tide).
First impressions is what the photograph above is all about, I was on a journey looking for images, these trips mostly start well before dawn and finish way after the sun has sunk into someone else’s sunrise. I was up Kimbolton way and rounded a corner and saw this layered scene of light tree hills...and sheep, framing up was easy I photographed portrait and landscape versions playing the tree off against the light and hills in different ways... but, there’s always a but, most of my time was spent waiting for those soon to be mobile carpets to move into position so they were not the photo....
