Cool Nicola Afternoon

Nicola Clouds

Travelling the 5A highway between Merritt and Kamloops, British Columbia there is some excellent high country grasslands. The hills are veined with ravines. The land is sculpted by centuries of erosion, but it’s hard to show the marvellous lines and curves that run up and down the Nicola Valley. An overcast day and thick clouds helped to show the golden colors in a nicely saturated way. I like the way the highway forms an S curve into the image. The fence and power poles form multiple repeating patterns that also lead your eye into the center of the frame where the lines in the hill can be seen. Even the heavy overcast day wasn’t all that bad.

Do you have trouble with “bad light”, or like Samantha Chrysanthou , do you believe there is no bad light?

In the best light…
