If someone asks me what I like about a photo, sometimes it’s very easy to answer while other times it’s hard to put my finger on it. In some cases, it’s not what’s obvious that’s appealing but what you have to look hard to see in the photo.
I love photos where at first glance my eyes are immediately busy taking in the multitude of details. I’m not talking about photos where you are overwhelmed by too many objects in the scene. I’m referring to photos where you are mesmerized by the richness of the scene.
This to me is one such photo. I took many pictures right in front of a waterfall on this particular day with no obstructions, and they are great photos, but I am really drawn to this photo because it provides only a distant glimpse of the waterfall. I love the fact that you start out in shadows and then move into the sunlight towards the waterfall at the end. It’s like the shadows frame the scene. There is just so much to look at in this photo, but somehow it’s not too much. Ok, does this make any sense at all? I know what I mean, but I’m not sure whether I’m expressing it well or not. Whether I am making any sense at all though, I hope you enjoy this photo too!
