This photo was taken on a cloudy, rainy, miserable day at Petone, Wellington, NZ. Even then I found it fascinating for me that I actually notice days like this and want to capture them.
The eye is drawn into the background and back to the foreground again and makes you want to keep looking at it. The darkness of the road and the top timber on the fence creates a nice contrast against the lightness of the clouds in the background. A cross-hatching filter was applied for added softness.
