Day 120

50mm lens, ISO200, f1.8, 1/60, Critiques welcome as I'm very much a learner.

5th January 2011

As I was drawing the curtains this evening, I was inspired by the light and textures of the sky to pick up my camera. I didn’t venture further than my front step but I love the silhouettes of the bare, winter trees against the darkening sky.  I had previously thought today’s photo was going to be a difficult one as I had no inspiration. It’s photos like these that encourage me to continue with my 365 project. Yes, its difficult at times (quiet frequent for me on week/work days) but photos like these make me realise that not only am I learning the technical side of photography but also I’m learning to see more creatively.

  1. I am certain there will be days, during the 365, in which we all feel like “just not today”. Hang in there, it’s a huge learning experience.

    I just started my second year of 365 and I know exactly what you are talking about how it can be quite difficult at time! You are doing a great job!! I love this photo with the beautiful sky and silhouettes! I love it when an amazing picture shows up when you think you may have nothing for the day :O)
