Friendly Friday – Colour Harmonies

I’m learning about colour schemes this week at a photo prompt challenge at Something to Ponder About’s blog.

I believe with the blues and purples in this photo I took during a sunset one evening this would fall under the category of “analogous.”

I agree that analogous color schemes are pleasing to the eye which is probably why I am so drawn to nature photography.

Here are other color schemes.

Check out the challenge for more photos!

Something Different

I post mostly nature images here so this is definitely something different but it is a picture of the gas station near my house. I was pumping gas one night at dusk after going on a picture walk, so I had my camera with me, and the building just looked kind of neat to me in the fading light with it’s neon lights in contrast with the approaching shadows. So I grabbed my camera and fired off 2-3 shots, getting the composition I liked best.

I imagined the clerk inside thought I was casing the joint or something equally as strange. I felt lucky I caught the moment with no cars parked in front of the store because I feel that would have ruined the shot.

I turned to my right after that and saw another picture opportunity as the sky was coloring so beautifully over the uhaul trucks the station rented out, so I took another unusual shot.

I took both of these with my Sony A68 and edited in Capture One.

Dragon Fly

Spotted this guy at the Marsh last month. Think it’s about time for another trip back there.

People and Sunsets

People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.

If my research is correct, this is a four toothed Mason wasp.
