Subtle landscapes
Posted By: JMR, 11-11-2008, 04:42 PM

I like these because they are a play of soft light and shadow on the rolling landscape.

your emphasis on texture with directional lighting really makes a class of your own. I really enjoy your series of posting

I took both shots in Caledon off No 11 side road. That's also where I took the Sunburst and the light through the canopy. The place is almost unrocognizable in the last few years with so much development. Have to go further north every 2-3 years. Almost any side road in the area has similar undulating landscapes. It was the light that caught my eye.

Great captures of light and land JMR. Love the rolling hills and the effect the light had on them.

it reminded me of this location, up Mississauga road just outside of Belfountain, right across from the Caledon Ski Club. I thought you had a different angle shot on it.

Very nice image. Looks like a Golf course. You appear to really like the sun in your images. Why don't you post some of your landscape images.

I like the second shot, and think what makes it work so well is the haze as you go deeper into the field.

Flow and texture

I really like the flowing texture and colors in the second one...


Would love to see more of the farmhouse in the 1st. When I look at it, the teenage boy in me keeps wanting to climb the hill to see the house.

Thanks. I find it very difficcult to retain light haze or mist in digital images except in gross fog or mist. It seem to disappear as soon as I try to alter the contrast or other levels.

I tried... I swear I tried! Could not get high enough to get most of the house. Next time will bring a ladder. (Always dream of bringing a small ladder with me to see over the hills and fences.) I decided the scene had a certain mystery about it with only half the house and the patterns in the field and light. Thanks for your positive and evocative comments.
