This beautiful photo was captured by Christian Heitz. Frankly, I think over-analyzing it would be a crime. However, fortunately for us, not much needs to be said (which is completely different than saying not much went on to capture the photo). In fact, the aesthetic of the photo can be attributed with only three words: depth of field.
In nearly all my posts, photos have a foreground, middle ground, and background. Of course, the subject matter that occupies each depth will vary from picture to picture, as well as the distance between each level of depth. In this case, the foreground is the field, middle ground is the rolling hills, and background is the peaks and sky.
Verbalizing the depth of field in the image brings up another point: the variations in terrain and color. The diverse geographical features, alternating colors (orange-green-orange), and matching color palette (orange sunset and orange fields), wrap the photo up perfectly.
If you remember, the photo from two posts ago demonstrated the same idea but in an urbanscape (rather than landscape) – an orange sunset complimented with orange street lights. This is a perfect example of photography techniques being applicable across a multitude of subject matters.
Any guesses as to where this was taken? 🙂
