Contrasts

New to photography and art, the concept of contrasts (opposites on the colour wheel) is an eye-opener. I had to search through my archives, and recent pics, to discover something fitting. It is easy to see how contrasts add humour to this Hallowe’en costume – colour, shapes and sizes contrasted. (A sad selfie).

Contrasts – reds and greens – makes this Green Heron one of my favourite birds, and no doubt makes the following image so appealing: the pop of red amongst green leaves, along with the subdued tones of the Great Blue Heron, and the mirror-like stillness of the moment captured.
