A bit and a lot

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Minimalism/Maximalism

Most people know I like minimalism, especially using nature, but in particular trees. I started doing a series of photos of a Tuckaroo tree in my garden but I couldn’t get the feel I wanted for this theme.

I dug around my archives and folders to find what I wanted and hope this sequence works well.

Using a bit of a dead tree and a cloudy sky for dramatic effect

Much the same but this time using sunlight to stand out from the clouds

More of a She Oak and using the distant mountains as a background

Or going green with a solo tree in a paddock. Cattle tracks in the grass break up a total green scene

Going more maximalism with a fine Fig tree to showcase its richness of form and design

Again highlighting the burnt branches after a fire with new growth and colour. The maximalism of every surface covered with something

Do you regard this photo as minimalism or maximalism. The sky bathed in colour and trees in the distance made to look small

Perhaps this is the opposite with a tree in silhouette dominating the foreground and a strong sky fighting for recognition

The theory of maximalism in that every part of the mountains covered in trees even though there isn’t a chaotic array of colours but a subdued hue of blues

I must end on minimalism with a concurrence between a branch, a leaf and Our Moon

It’s going round

Our Moon and some clouds

Sunday Stills: #Light the Night

On Sunday night, the full moon rose over the hill and a scattering of clouds helped the Moon light the night

It was a very bright Moon (sorry about quality – hand held)

The clouds tried to cover our Moon

The scattered clouds allowed some Moon #Light to shine through

I love taking photos of Our Moon

In case you wonder why I call it Our Moon as the Moon belongs to no one and is not some sort of mining resource that some nations on this ruined planet seem to think. OUR MOON is a source of love, light and wonder since humans looked to the skies. OUR MOON controls our seas, weather and the moods of humans and it should be left to continue being so.
