Art Gallery:  Sunsets, Skies, and Clouds 1


(Film)

                 

        
              



The sunset:  most addictive part of photography.  It is for me, at least.  It's an endless quest to capture the pure essence of the sunset.   I can't get enough of these skies.  I don't feel right unless I'm at least chasing after one of them.   Or thinking of which camera I will use to photograph them.  Or picking out which type of film I'll use for them. 

Color casts?  I don't care much about that.  Sunset photos are not about the exact apperance of the sunset;  they're about how I remember the sunset.  Or how I want to remember the sunset.   If the clouds are a bit more magenta than they should be, then so much the better.

Somewhere beyond that sunset, I know the road leads to more unexplored places:  going ever farther, outward, and upward.   To take a picture at the moment the sun goes down is to know that the sun is shining upon some distant New Lands over that horizon, somewhere to the west.  And it's good. 

I know each time that tomorrow is another day... with the possibility of another sunset.   And when there are clouds, not sun, I find the beauty in those, too.

Most of my work is on film (35mm through 4x5), but there's an occasional digital picture as well.

Titles are subject to change without notice, because sometimes I name the pictures on a whim.

I hope you enjoy browsing through this gallery!

Winslow



October 2012.  The high-speed color negative film imparts a grainy appearance to the picture.

The color balance was adjusted to my liking, not necessarily the way it actually looked.
