Photo Observation #4

4. Though the sky is dark, the land is submersed in a strange yellow glow. The green of the grass is unnaturally bright: it is screaming for help, but the storm has already taken hold of the sky, taking the sun away and filling its place with darkness. And soon it will wreak havoc on the land as well. Where does the yellow haze come from and how long will it last before everything becomes dark?

Photo Observation #3: Cold

  4. This quality of light in this picture is cool and eery. It shows the picture of a desert road which would normally be sweltering hot. On the contrary the coming storm and it’s clouds filters the light making what would naturally be a warm amber into a blue and green tinted shade. The shadows are undefined and scattered making the ground hazed and dark. The light shining through the clouds is a cool blue creating shades of grays and blues across the sky. When I look at this picture I picture the wind blowing cool air down my back and the shivering anticipation one gets in night air of winter. What is especially interesting is that the light looks cold in a climate and location that is normally extremely hot.
