Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

‘In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or the foreground the center of attention.’

    • Thank you! :) I actually almost missed it. I was chatting with a friend when she asked me to look out the window to see the beautiful sky. I immediately hurried to drive to the sea and so glad I made it just in time to capture such beauty. :)

    • Thank you for appreciating! And the colors was indeed stunning, At some angles, the sea looks purple and at some a sea of fire. :)

  1. Lovely photo. It is interesting how weather is often an important aspect in the making of scenery. Turner was right.
