This week’s assignment – Use strong backlighting (i.e. shooting towards the light source, but do not look directly at the sun) to create a contre-jour image where the subject becomes a silhouette, OR shoot the light through flowers or leaves creating a transparent effect.
My choice for circular is the Gay Head Lighthouse in the town of Aquinnah on Martha’s Vineyard. Five years ago the lighthouse was only 46 feet from the edge of the cliffs and was moved to a new location approximately 180 feet from the edge. On May 27, 2015 the preparation for the actual move began. The move was was completed on May 30, 2015 and the lighthouse reopened that August.
The pictures below show a circle of stones where the lighthouse had been before the move.
Where else would you find countless branches than at Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey. And where else would you find countless branches filled with cherry blossoms every April than at the Cherry Blossom festival in Branch Brook Park.
Here’s a little known fact: Branch Brook Park has more cherry trees than Washington D.C. and has more than 2,700 Japanese cherry blossom trees. Branch Brook Park also holds the distinction of being the first county park in the United States opened to the public.
A few pictures from 2010 and 2018. I really kind of like the lion one best
