Straw Power Cells

Forres, Moray, Scotland

I like to photograph straw bale fields as much as anyone, their shapes and the repetitive patterns that they form are fascinating and when they are lit by golden sunshine they look quite stunning. This is a slightly unusual approach, including a slope ensures that the straw bales occupy some vertical depth on the transparency or file, whereas a flat field tends to show up as a thin strip and this hill is conveniently angled toward the setting sun. The splayed rays of light carefully organised so that they appear to emanate from the bale on the brow of the hill seem synonymous with power, the dark bales are perhaps spent batteries laying discarded on the ground.

Check out my brand new TRANSIENT LIGHT site.
