Impression: Trees, Mist, Light 2


On the Scottish side of River Tweed, these trees stand on the slope going down to the water, the silhouettes of the ivy-covered trunks standing out against the gold hue which lights up the trees further down the slope, the blurring of the colours (because I don’t have a tripod) making the softness of the hues and the foreground shapes seem like a painting created at a certain time in the 20th century.

  1. Definitely impressionist – would make a nice painting.

    • Hi, Mary. Thank you for your comment – the fuzziness and the dark silouettes of the ivy-covered trees was quite Bonnard, but the colour wasn’t. I do think the photograph came out like a painting, that wobble of the hand gave it an impressionistic quiver.

      • So funny, but I did enjoy the impressionist feel ~
