Light, Shadow, Sun And Storm…

bright field 1 cropped

This week at Lens-Artists, Tina shows us many creative ways to interpret her chosen theme ‘opposites’. I thought I’d choose just one photo – a chance weather moment in Wales – one of those hard-to-credit solar beams piercing a storm-heavy sky. I mean to say, how can that field be so luminously green when the town of Harlech below is so deep in shadow, and the clouds above so full of rain? I even desaturated the image a notch or two. Of course there are other opposites here too: townscape-landscape;  manmade-natural; urban-rural.

  1. Loveliest of photos, Tish.

    This sudden ever-changing of earth and sky and man-made towns and villages (always below) is here in Dylan Thomas (of course!):
    ‘Light breaks on secret lots,
    On tips of thought where thoughts smell in the rain;
    When logics die,
    The secret of the soil grows through the eye,
    And blood jumps in the sun;
    Above the waste allotments the dawn halts.’
