Continuing with exercise 31, variety with a low sun, this post concentrates on back lighting and edge lighting.
Over a few evenings in slightly different locations I was able to find a variety of backlit landscape subjects.
Both fig. 1 and fig 2 are variations on back lighting. Fig 1 is nearly directly into the sun whereas fig. 2 has the sun on the right hand side and just above the frame so the lighting changes across the picture. They are quite different in terms of atmosphere with the first picture being about shapes and tones whereas, in the second picture I am trying to capture the peaceful warm light of a summer’s evening.
Figs. 3,4 and 5 are in search of the elusive edge lighting which is undoubtably the hardest to find in a landscape. I think that fig. 3 comes nearest.
