“Out On The Edge”
Cloud cover creates dappled light, illuminating separate sections of a canyon near my home. I have been here a lot, because of its close proximity, but was never able to create anything I really liked, until this day when there was actually some dynamic lighting happening.
It’s funny, when I first started shooting, I was always just focusing on sunrise and sunset light, never thinking photography was even possible during the day. Now I find myself shooting all day long on cloudy days, when there is light like this, and putting my camera away just to sit and enjoy the sunset, since it seems much more standard and less unique to me. There is just so much you can do with pieces of light moving all round the landscape, illuminating smaller sections individually. It gives you the opportunity to showcase different parts of the scene and draw the focus practically anywhere you want. It also feels more dramatic and mysterious to me, and I love capturing the drama and mystery of nature in my photos. Hope you enjoy it too!
