This series of photos was taken about a week after last week’s Evening Light image. In fact, these images are from the same roll of Freestyle Legacy Pro 400 (made by Fuji) as the Barn & Silo photo I posted two weeks ago. I used my Nikon N8008s and 35mm AF lens for all the shots on this roll.
As I rode along a section of road wooded on one side, the character of the light grabbed me and told me to stop. I was riding slower than usual so I could ‘see.’ I parked the bike and grabbed this shot.
Then I moved (zoomed with my feets) to try a different angle and framing. Which is the better image? I like both and I haven’t made up my mind yet.
I took this one at the top of a hill about a half mile farther along the road where I always stop to rest and have a sip or two from my water bottle. I parked my bike next to the cornfield and walked across the road for a better shot. The light that evening was lovely and this image jumped out at me, begging to be remembered. I enjoy the contrast between this image and the two above, yet they all share the magic of the evening light.
Drop on by The Weekend in Black and White, especially if you are a monochrome maniac. There’s lots links to some great monochrome photography. And some of the monochrome maniacs still use film like I do.
