The Lantern and the Storm by Paul Davis

Currently unavailable for purchase

A weathered lantern lies in wait for night fall.

Photo taken just as a storm rolled in.

Gutted I was too late for the rusty lantern competition :(

The photo was taken under ‘flash’ conditions – but only a single flash and NO editing afterwards.

A little bit about my camera:

It’s an Olympus e500 with a problem…

I am thinking that the large amounts of moisture that is currently in the air is causing several issues with data capture. It comes up with a D:3C85 damage code – that sounds serious.

But, on a good day my beautiful Oly will capture hundreds of photos without this error.

Today was not such a day :(

Several errors (multiples) and many lost photos – so the ones that made it are being upped.

And if sold… all proceeds will go towards a brand new e30 – a real step up in the right direction for me :)

Thanks for stopping by…

PS – I don’t think this counts for the Art For Charity group does it?

PPS – There is no editing on this photo at all – captured, copied and uploaded only!

    Beautiful abstract! I just love the colours

  • Thanks for that. The background colour is the natural storm cloud colour for this time of year hehe.
