∞ AZZURE II ∞ by Jonathan Stacey

I adore the simplicity of this image…. yet have revisited this edit countless times, which inadvertently has made this a seemingly very complicated image in my mind.
I suppose like many others in my collection…it just wasn’t right…didn’t work or wasn’t complete. I couldn’t convey through the image what I wanted to, I suspect I was battling with it’s similarity to Azzure. and why not ???.. it has shot to third place at over 1400 views. All the more reason not to dilute ??. Aside form all this, I now believe it is sufficiently different to earn it’s own place….alongside Azzure and After Glow, “Complimentary” one might say………

Taken at Lake Te Anau, Fiordland National Park, New Zealands South Island.

Appreciating and capturing light is the cornerstone to my photography. combine this with the beauty of our Western Australian beaches and rocky coastline and you have something that should be both witnessed, captured and shared.

I hope I can inspire you to take the time to see a sunrise or sunset, on a coast or a rocky outcrop somewhere, and then maybe you can understand why for me, Photography has become a passion……

    This one sort of gives me a creepy movie feel.. like this is a scene where the murder victim was found.. maybe a movie producer will see what I see or a novel and ask for the rights? It’s that good and moody :)

  • Ha.. You think so Ang ??.. glad you like the mood !!
