Default Silence

there's not much sound in a place like this... perhaps the occasional chirp of a small insect, or the soft whisper of a gentle breeze... perhaps the soft crunch of gravel under your feet... perhaps nothing at all... 40D with Tamron SP17-35, taken at Kodachrome Valley, Utah.

squirl033,


Great picture. Sounds like a contradiction, but you can almost hear the silence. That's poetry you've created there; both in the picture and in the pretext that very well could be divided into rows


Hope I got it right this time


Paul Simon:


"Hello darkness, my old friend,

I've come to talk with you again,

Because a vision softly creeping,

Left its seeds while I was sleeping,

And the vision that was planted in my brain

Still remains

Within the sound of silence"



Talk about engaging more than one sense. Photography can do it too

Thanks


Torgny

Made me think of being on Mars......not that I've been there, ...much. Great use of a daytime photo. Outside the box thinking. Excellent!

Are you able to go here at night to try light painting it? Go during some slight moon phase to help with lighting up the cliffs, light paint the tree and with a sky full of stars,....wide angle, 2.8......imagine... make it happen, = killer photo.

I agree with spy -- it looks otherworldly with it's unnatural-looking light, which is what I love about the photo.
