photoblog image Into the Sun

Into the Sun

Early morning sun, filtered by a grass seed-head.

 

A spider has been using the seed-head as a weaving loom.

 


 

I am presently in Dhaka, Bangladesh, so have commenced a blog about my experiences and observations of this place. If you have time to visit the blog I would be delighted to receive any comments.

brilliant use of the sun to show off the hard work of the spider. i like how the light illuminates certain areas and then there are silhouettes elsewhere
Ray: For a change, Ayush, I did all the composition in the camera's view screen.

The most unusual image, Ray. Absolutely love how you composed it.
Ray: You are very encouraging, VZ.

Grasses are possibly my favourite plants, so I am always looking for ways to show them off.
Up close and a wonderful image.
Ray: Thank you, Jacquelyn. I appreciate your kind remark.

Very artistic: those spiders are wonderful industrious things
Ray: Spiders are very successful critters, Chris, and I suspect their industriousness is one of the reasons why.

Ray: You are very encouraging, Chadridge.

Fabulous against the sun, Ray. You can count every hair/thread!
Ray: Its a whole mini-world in the grass seed-head, Ginnie.

Fascinating shot of the grass and the spiderweb. You did a great job with the light here. Grass is indeed very photogenic.
Ray: I spend a lot of time with my camera in the grass, Astrid...some much of interest in that world.

a wonderful image - to photograph into the sun can be stunning.
Ray: I agree with your comment, Philine.

I still remember one of the first rules I was given about photography..."Shoot with the sun over one shoulder".

Excellent composition and [icture. Likey.
Ray: You are very kind, Louis.
Just captivating Ray...
Ray: Something like this certain steals all my attention, Aderonke.
Glad you chucked the rule of shooting with the sun over one shoulder, Ray. This is a stunner!
Ray: Using the sun for backlighting things like this is good fun, too, Beverly.
This all comes together to make a rally good image Ray.
Ray: I was rather pleased with it, Brian.
Simply wonderful with the sun behind! Well done Ray.
Ray: Thank you, Richard. I appreciate your generous comment.

Pretty amazing image Ray.
Ray: I am delighted you think so, Maestro.
This is just splendid Ray!
Ray: Well...thank you, Bill.
This is really exquisite!
Ray: I actually managed to think about the composition a little while the camera was in my hand, Elizabeth.
Incroyable, cette plante est presque animal...
Ray: Quelquefois je pense les usines et les animaux ne sont pas si différents, Magali... Je ne serais pas surpris si j'ai partagé beaucoup de gènes avec un concombre et je serais offensé non plus.

[Sometimes I think plants and animals are not so different, Magali...I wouldn't be surprised if I shared many genes with a cucumber, and I would be offended either.]
lovely moment you caught so well!
Ray: You are very generous, Juan Carlos.
lovely moment you caught so well!
Ray: I went after the composition quite seriously for a change, Juan Carlos.
Great idea !!
Ray: Thank you, Zebigleb.
