Early mornings and late afternoons are the ideal times to capture the serenity of nature whether I’m painting or taking photos. The tranquil setting along with the soft edges and cool lavenders create the perfect relaxing mood in the photo “Serenity.”
Water is always a great subject for portraying calmness, especially using cool colours. If its the middle of the day there is a lot of glare and contrast that creates harsher tones and sharper edges. Dusk and sunrise help create softer edges which will convey a smoother, more relaxed feel to the image.
All these shots were taken while up in Darwin, NT Australia and trekking around the area. It had stunning scenery, sunsets, waterfalls, crocodiles. Though, I have to confess, the whole crocodile boat trip, was not, definitely not, relaxing! But the rest certainly was.
