The Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #89: A River Runs Through It
Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #20
The Clarence River, a few kilometers from my place is one of the largest rivers in Australia. When the river floods the amount of water that flows through the countryside is incredible at times five million million liters flows downstream. (one million liters is equal to an Olympic swimming pool).
On Saturday we went for a drive further upstream to a place we haven’t been before for a picnic. Didn’t encounter many people as the gravel road is quite rough but a very picturesque drive through some lovely country, through farms, across many cattle grids and a bit of forest.
Coming down the hill there is the river and the bridge
Signs of the recent flood are evident, a bit of debris on a fence and high in the trees.
Looking upstream at what appears to be calm water and not much of a sign of the flood
Looking downstream the river runs over some rocks and picks up speed. The trees on the front left hand side of the photo would have been under water.
Away from the main channel some side pools still have some water. This pool also had some algae.
Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #12: Texture
This month we are going to look at textures. While the structure of an object is its form, the material from which it is made constitutes its texture. Is it hard or soft, smooth or rough? You are aiming at translating texture visually, bringing life and energy to a photo through shape, tone and colour. Study the texture and forget about the object. Texture becomes the subject here.
- Try contrasting rough against smooth
- Shoot at different times of the day. Does it change the effect?
- Capture details – like the fibres in a rope or a carpet.
- Try altering the angle of light to avoid flat and dull images. You might be able to do this with your editing software too.
- Use different angles to discover how much texture appears.
This weeks assignment: Try to mix your texture with other colours and patterns
A bit of contrast of textures, not many colours but perhaps patterns in a way. Found while at a river crossing where a flood came through a few week ago. Photographed from the low level bridge on a bright sunny day. Image is unaltered.
Brens Floral Friday – FF #11
Cee’s Flower of the Day – FOTD
A walk through the bush to see a bit of the recovery from the devastating fire, we found these little flowers. I am yet to do an ID sorry.
The Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Ladders
I do seem to have many ladders, from the small step ladder to a rather big ladder that reaches to giddy heights. The ladder I thought I would show you is one that was found in a garage sale and I find quite a cute little ladder, I have used this ladder in other posts such as a black and white challenge from Cee. It has changed location since then and has a few different pot plants who love to sit thereon.
