Skywatch Friday: A Composition against the Sky





Unlike my other Skywatch Friday posts, where there's always a story behind the photo, today's photo is purely for my photographic interest. I took this photo at Braga Fest last December. It was getting dark as I was exploring the southern end of the street looking for interesting bits of the festival's events when I saw this warm light of the street lamp falling on the tent and against the bluish grey twilight sky. I took several shots, trying to get the best composition from different angles. Here is one of them.

Please follow this Skywatch Friday link to see other photos of the participating blogs.

Clever with the light..I haven't done mine yet....

You succeeded in getting a very good angle!! The sky by itself would not be very interesting, and the streetlight is a streetlight, but combine them with the tent and the reflected light, and you have a masterpiece!!
Thanks for sharing!

It's a wonderful picture.
At first sight, before reading, I thought it was a road to infinity.
You've played once more with light and shadow. A great post.
I love these pictures taken just for the beauty of the execution. Just like a work of art that watchers interpret according to their sensibility.

I came home from Australia last night and am looking forward to catching up on all my favorite bloggers. Sorry there was no time or opportunity for such pleasures while caring for my little grandsons.
Your drums of today are lovely too. I'll go hear the video after putting the post-flight laundry in the machine. :)
Shalom to you again!
