Abstract Orange


The other day Bethany sent me out to rent a movie for the kids. As per usual, I brought my camera along, because you never know when a photo opportunity might present itself. When I hadn't returned after 45 minutes, she called me to see what was taking so long. I'm afraid I got a little side tracked.

On the way back from the movie store, I made a quick stop at the Knight St bridge to take a few shots of the river as the sun set. Unfortunately the sun was already a bit too low, so there wasn't much light reaching the river. I did, however, find these strange looking trees growing beside the bridge. I liked the branches, so I used the setting sun to accent their strange shape. I underexposed by several f/stops in order to get a silhouette against a nice orange background.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 72mm, f/8, 1/80 sec, ISO 50

some how this shot makes me think of a line in a Bruce Cockburn song. "I've read the bible, I try to read it right. far as I can tell it's nothing but a burning light."

That's what I think of when I see this, a burning light.

Impressive silhouette against the bright orange. They look a bit like bats :)

A very appropriate image for the time of year, and aside from that ,I really do like it. The colors pop well together. Well done.

Its a nice shot although it is a little blown in the bottom left but I guess you not going to get away from that when shooting into the sun to get such a great pattern effect
