Thursday Doors : Through the glass doors…

I visit the Murwillumbah Art Gallery quite often. The most recent visit I show cased Margaret Olley and her amazing art and the studio she worked in.

But the building is also a delight to walk around and as I passed these glass doors the beauty of the light and the shadows the late afternoon sun created I thought was also a work of art.

Stepping outside on to the deck the stunning scenery of the Tweed Valley unfolds before me and has me trying to capture the picture perfect art of nature.

Photography 101 : The Natural World

The Tweed Valley on the border of Queensland and New South Wales is a beautiful part of the natural world. The Tweed River winds its tranquil way through the soft green valley and the aerial perspective of the mountains gives a 3 dimensional effect to the scene.

The light was subdued and sombre, not the best for landscape photography.  I am looking forward to going back here on a sunny day to capture the scene again in a different light, then I can compare what difference a sunny day will make. That is the addiction of photography always looking for a different perspective.

I then zoomed in to make the aerial perspective of the mountains the main focus, looking at the way they fade into the distance. I think the first photo is a better composition for this “natural world” theme.
