Morning light this time of year creates great long shadows when the trees are bare of leaves and the sun angle is low. This view is pretty much right out of the camera. In my mind it is a quintessential southeastern New England view.
I wanted to manipulate it........
......by eliminating all color and applying an infrared filter to lighten the greenery and roadway.
Another version with just black and white and increased contrast.
This is a good illustration of the magic of photography - the ability to freeze a moment in time - in our ever-increasing pace of life, I can make time stop moving and examine a piece of it at leisure - the light, shadow, color, angle, composition, expression, and, I can change some of those attributes if I want to. Stopping time is a powerful tool and god-like power. All that from photography!
