FRAMING THE SKY

This brilliant day was a perfect opportunity to use trees to frame that incredibly blue sky. It was an amazing color, almost surreal. I stepped back into the shade, the trees were silhouettes. I pressed the shutter. Voila. A summer sky, framed by trees, captured forever.

  1. Yup, your shot covers a lot of contrasts and the trees against the sky are beautiful (I am partial to nature but living in Barbados where we mostly have sun and greenery all year long could be the reason for this). Think you did a great job intrepreting the challenge; here’s my abstract kind of take on contrasts – how did I do? Talk to me!
