Landscapes with a holiday feel

16 Nov

These photographs have a strong nostalgic theme for me; they remind me of holidays, exploration and happiness.

The above photofits tidily into the rule of thirds. The contrasting textures of the wall and the door juxtapose with the metal of the candle holder. The warmth of the tones make the picture feel relaxing and calm.

I wanted this picture to capture a sense of loneliness and exploration, and the lighthouse in the sea, away from the cliff edge encapsulates this. It is not a negative feeling picture as the bright colours of the sea and the cliff and the red on the lighthouse prevent it from becoming oppressive.

This picture primarily was taken to emphasise the feeling of joy. On the horizno, we can see a man playing with a kite, but this looks like he is celebrating. From a low perspective, and the content of the picture, it almost feels like a child has taken it. The tree in the foreground gives a sense of  location, and its texture gives a feeling of depth and shadow on a bright day.
