“MAN-MADE IN NATURE”
I’ve taken many photos at this exact site; a lovely forest preserve about 5 minutes from home. It’s a picturesque setting throughout the seasons. Though the sky was beautiful while setting, I felt a little “blah” about one of my favorite local places. It might just be that I was uninspired by the trampled snow on the bridge, or that there just wasn’t enough snow to be interesting. It might be I was freezing, and nothing looked just right to me tonight. Or it could be the light didn’t feel very inviting. Even the right composition wasn’t coming easily; the prettiest part of the sky didn’t allow for an angle of the bridge that I would have liked. These are the days where the challenges are truly (wait for it…) challenging.
Finding that one piece of interesting sky, or that one pink & golden slice of reflection in the water can somehow make up for the trampled-on snow. The thing I truly love about photo challenges is that when it becomes difficult to find a photo you like during that week, it’s that much more gratifying when you do come up with something “good”, even if not great. I’ve learned to really LOOK for that special something that turns a snapshot into something better.
