Photo of the Week: Week 41

I took this image for a specific reason. This week, I was putting together a presentation for our camera club on composition in photography, and one of the points was on the use of colour in an image. On one of the slides, I show the standard colour wheel and talk about contrasting and complimenting…

School Bus

This weeks photo is one that I took on the Bridgenorth Trail the other day. The sun was low in the sky and streaming through the trees. I liked the way these poplars were growing so close to each other and the colour contrast with the surrounding vegetation.
