Grey Room

Tiredness fuels empty thoughts
I find myself disposed
Brightness fills empty space
In search of inspiration
Harder now with higher speed
Washing in on top of me

– Damien Rice

  1. Love this: the composition, the tree, and the pink mist (sounds like something that happens after a glass too many red wine). Wow also: Damien Rice. I had forgotten about him. I used to listen to his album ‘O’ a lot. It’s brought back happy memories of 2002 / 2003 …….

    • Yeah, he’s always a reliable choice for those melancholic, misty days. Thanks Meanderer, glad to hear you like these.

  2. I love the perspective and the composition of this. The atmosphere is very dream like too. Really nice. 🙂

    • Thanks Katie, it was such a strange day you know, everything looked a bit unreal in a way…

  3. Well, I can’t but repeat what was said above: excellent composition and this lovely mist that gives the dreamy effect. Very well crafted!

    I am discovering that in addition to being a compelling photographer, you also have great taste in music. Feel free to ignore the suggestion, but try looking up Fionn Regan’s album The End of History.

    • I’m always on the lookout for new, and captivating music, so thanks, think I will definitely check out the suggestion.

    A beautiful light and a lovely rosey effect … I could look at that picture for hours!

  7. I feel like I want to walk out into the field…and stay there…

    • Oh yes, it was truly one of those mornings you can’t help but call ‘magical’…

  8. dreamy…

    • Oh yes, it most certainly was that type of morning…

  9. “Funny how falling feels like flying for a little while” (Jeff Bridges)

    Really feels like falling out of the frame into a kind of surrealistic pleasure. Is it us follwong the light or the light following us? More questions than answers but that’s what makes it feel so good, Jean-Pierre.

    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    • Very good question that, sometimes a little bit of both I suppose, and sometimes just falling…

      Hope all is well that side.

  10. Oh really excellent picture, JP! Its rather unworldly, especially with that mist, and taking it off the horizontal has greatly added to this – and the words go well with it too. Good work! Adrian

    • Thanks my friend. Yes, it was such a surreal morning you know, and I felt that the different angle on this one really illustrates how strange everything looked in the mist.

      December 9, 2011 at 7:52 pm

  11. Very interesting! Love the angle. Unusual!

    December 16, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    • Thanks so much, I was lucky to find that tree growing at such an unexpected angle, and on a misty morning also, which I think succeeded in making the shot a bit unusual.

  12. It seems a coup that you were able to maintain so much color in the fog. My recent encounter with it was much more muted:

    December 20, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    • Yes, that’s true, the colour did come out remarkably well considering the conditions. Thanks so much for the comment and visit!

  13. The tree hidden by the mist is beautiful.

    December 28, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    • Thank you so much, I must admit to being happy with how that one turned out, seeing that the light was so strange that morning.
