Without further ado, my very best image of the year. I know, you are nearly speechless, just like I was when I saw this scene and it captured my heart. Compositionally, I mean how can one do better? I did agonize for several hours whether to share it with you in a vertical/portrait format, or this landscape version.
In the end, they were both so superb I just went with this because it fits better on the computer screen.
But back to how all my skills have coalesced to enable me to make such an image. The lighting... As John Barclay would say "yummy lighting." You could spend hours, perhaps days, waiting for just the conditions under which I have captured the scene.
The green, representing the new growth of Spring, a Spring which just won't be harnessed. It is erupting from the Earth, as you see here. And the blue, representing man's structure and form we impose on the planet. Strong, determined, but yet subtly imperfect. Part of what makes this image so compelling is how I juxtaposed man vs nature.
I could go on for hours about the pure magic in my master work, but I must post now in order to share it with the world.
