Under the Influence of John Constable


I now understand what they mean by the golden light of sunset. I was in the northwest part of the county, an hour before sunset and was struck by the way the sun turned everything gold. It occurs infrequently (at least for me) and so I try to take advantage of it when I can.

And if a snapshot can said to be influenced by an artist, I have to say that this snapshot reminds me of John Constable's landscape paintings.

That landscape is absolutely beautiful! It certainly could be a view of the East Anglian countryside in Constable`s day. An amazing sky.

Yes, it really does look like a painting Karen. Stunning shot!

Roch: Thanks for visiting. I took it over on Plainfield Road where you can really get a sweeping vista.

DW: Now there is another place I would love to visit. Do places still look the same as in Constable's time?

Anyes: Well, you inspired me to go out at that time of day to see what I could photograph.
