Summer Heat

Posted by

You've probably guessed that this isn't a photo from the UK!

This is from the Île de Ré which is an island halfway down the atlantic coast of France.

NIKON D40 1/500 second F/11.0 ISO 200 57 mm (35mm equiv.)

the clouds are... of the same tone as the wall. yet there is the stark contrast between something strong and rectilinear against something so fluid and temporal. it is very interesting.
