Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
While churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples rightly can be called sacred spaces, our Picture This! assignment for this month is about scenes and locales that inspire a sense of the divine, or at least a feeling that something greater than ourselves is at work, when we stand and contemplate them. It can be a moment where light makes a special play, a structure or formation that leaves us in awe, or a simple and serene scene that creates an awareness of the sacred in life. This photo is about the wisps of cloud that swept over the massive rock formation one late afternoon, a breeze, and light play that made me stop and marvel at the beauty of the world. Exposure with a Rollei medium format camera on Ilford Delta 100 was f/8 at 1/125 sec.
