Today’s assignment for The Daily Shoot was “Make a photograph using wide focal length. Zoom or prime or iPhone cameras all qualify for going wide today.” I didn’t have a lot of time for planning and shooting photos (I made my third trip to Hamilton for the week, and then finally had to get some hours in at work.) but I did take a short side trip up into the foothills of the Bitterroot Mountains so I could get a wide angle shot of the east side of the valley.
One thing I like about this photo (maybe the only thing – I’m not excited about this one) is the layers of color. The whites in the top third, the blues then greens in the center, then the almost autumn yellow/green in the lower third – it all breaks it into those pleasing “thirds”. It’s a bit busy to me – there are essentially 2 focal points (the valley in the distance and the farm in the center-ish). I think that’s why I’m not thrilled. Oh well…there it is.
I had an idea for my Friday the 13th photo for the Facebook Project 365 group, but it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to carry it out – the subject I need (a particular person) isn’t home. Hmph.
