The photo: It may be due to the evolutionary reasons that we do not have a very good eye for judging vertical distances as compared to horizontal ones. That is part of the reason why the full moon at its rise appears so much larger than when it is hanging in the middle of the sky, and why a cliff appears to be much taller when one’s standing on top of it vs. looking at it from the bottom. This capture attempts to display the vastness of the space above us by zooming in to just a small snippet of the sky, and putting it in the context of the hills and the “massive” trees which bind it to the ground. The silver glossy finish of the Hahnemühle Photo Rag Metallic paper enhances the diverse presence of orange tones in this photo. The solid colours appear complex and dimensional owing to the soft texture of this fine art paper. While the hills and the trees appear perfectly still in time, the subtle tonal differences in the sky make it look dynamic and evolving, breaking the illusion which we’ve all been conditioned to accept, that all that happens, happens in our horizontal plane.

Behind the scenes:  The deep and complex orange tones of the sky are not a consequence of any sort of photoshop magic. They are in fact a result of the forest fires which Robin and I happened to be near the epicenter of while camping near Hunters, WA, USA in the late summer of 2019. We were told that the fires on the other side of Lake Roosevelt/Columbia River are not likely to hop over towards us, we should stay put, but be ready to evacuate immediately if such were to happen. And so we did.
