Fire and Smoke Sunrise

IT’s winter with ice and snow covering the ground. It’s time to burn slash and branches from around the homestead. This is a yearly chore.. 

Some of the extra brush we get from wind damage or tree maintenance we put out on the prairie in piles to provide cover for small animals. Other piles get burned. This one burned hot and provided a sun filter effect for me to take advantage of lolol. I’m always looking for new ways to filter light from that overly bright orb that appears to move across the sky. 

The overall effect I think is attractive in many ways. I’m not sure what to compare it to. Perhaps one of the artists out there can put a label who I was channeling at the time. Looks like a painting to me. Of course that is always a goal but it doesn’t always happen hard as I try lolol. No “filters” involved here as I use no such things in front of my lens. A cell phone might actually be able to take this image. I honestly didn’t see this coming but had to try anyway. Just hanging out on the edge of what is photogenic. I find the simple things are often the most interesting to me and often you the viewer. 

Hope this finds you all well and safe this Saturday Noon. Busy day Saturday, I’m doing images all day, virtually every day now.πŸ“ΈπŸ‘€

Fire and Ice is an image I captured last winter that I converted to Black and White, then colorized it appropriate to the piece. Often looking into the sun will give me an UMBER coloration and this was no exception so I brought it back into the level of reality that I recall at the time. I really messed with this so it is indeed a hybrid ART/Photo Image.
