Extended Thursday: Back to Beber’s natural beauty

leave a comment »

Happy April to all you faithful readers!  For those of you keeping score, my Extended Thursdays series has officially been running for over a month.  I don’t know about you, but I’m very impressed with my consistency.  I’ll keep it up as long as I can.

Anyway, let’s get back to the photography….

One of the many benefits of documenting life at Beber Camp every summer is an opportunity to experience the area’s wonderful natural beauty.  I had the privilege of watching the light, clouds, and environment shift from day to day and hour to hour, giving me a strong appreciation of both the power of nature’s beauty as well as its transience.

These two landscape extensions capture a range of time, as daylight disappears and night approaches.  Traditional dusk photos, or any traditional photographs for that matter, usually capture a particular moment.  These extensions not only capture an expanse of space, but perhaps more interestingly in this dynamically shifting end of day period, they also display an expanse of time.

(And yes, for you avid readers who pore over every post, both of these shots have been on the blog before.  I couldn’t resist pairing them together here to illustrate the concept of time extension.  Thanks for understanding!)
