Change inThe Seasons-And There´s A Full Moon Coming
Those that have seen my last post will recognise this-what has changed however, is the sky-bigtime! These type of Sunsets only come once or twice a year here- and only at this time of the year. You just can´t put a date or day on it, it comes when it comes and won´t come again ´til next year-it really is the anouncement of a new season. When i go to the roof terrace, first light of the morning, i can watch the swallows and sparrows, vying for supremacy to pick the best mate, i can smell the Orange blossom and have to duck my head from the Bees whizzing by,heading out to the blossom in the “campo” to start their days work. The country flowers have´nt quite come in full bloom yet, but there´s a full moon in two days, so i´m sure they´ll get going from then on!
I went up on the terrace just now- and the night lark is singing her song-just like last year, she´ll be gone soon, until next year!
The village,the house,the family, everything blissfully silent and asleep-except me, a beautiful time for quiet reflection of the day past and the day to come, and of ´course updating the blog!
But there is a ferrocious wind that comes for a few minutes and then dies out completely for a ½ hour or so- is this a storm front? They say in Spain-rain that comes with the full Moon, rains for 40 days-maybe i´ll have to plan for a photographic rain project for the next month!
As my wife and Daughter, dog ,Etc, entered the house, everywhere was bathed in this weird orange light- the missus said “get up there with the camera Adrian,the sunset is amazing”( i was Post-Processing some of yesterday´s photo´s- what´s that Joni Mitchell lyric: “Don´t know what you´ve got ´til it´s gone”) . So rushed up to the roof and luckily all the cam settings were pretty much there-nothing really to do but shoot. I like the sky colours, they seem to compliment the buildings –same kind of colours!
In case anyone´s interested settings were: Neutral,Spot metered( thanks to Adrian@Fatman Photos for your input-it´s noted).
This is SOOC- WYSIWYG-no PP in or out of camera, the sky colours are exactly as i saw them.I have´nt even cloned out the TV masts! I have done a B/W version of this that i like, but this version does more for me- so the B/W is for my archives-not the blog.
