Photographs of the landscape

The light changes according to the weather, the time of day and the time of year.  This is exciting for artists and photographers.  Even amateur phone-wielding snappers such as myself may be fascinated by the same subject captured with different light.

I am demonstrating this with photos of a well-known local feature of the landscape.  The first photo is from Good Friday afternoon.  (An earlier post shows another photo from the same day.)

The second photo was taken from the same point the following morning.  The sun was shining and was in the recommended position for photography – somewhere behind the camera.

The last photo was taken on the following Wednesday evening.  There had been sea mist for a few days, so the landscape lit by strong, low sunlight was particularly remarkable.

The sea was reflecting the pink sky and I could not resist this shot (which I cropped to remove some of the foreground.)  The light was not in the recommended direction for photography, but sunset and sunrises seem to be allowed!
