the light is waning

 

i always find the time of day when light is transitioning to be most interesting. perhaps it's the liminality of the moment- as the threshold for a beginning or an end or even something in-between. and the fact that if you don't capture it, the light it will change very quickly, making the image especially unique and ephemeral.

both of these images were taken near the end of the day in the macdonnell ranges near alice springs. within an hour the light went from bright yellow gold to a deep brooding red, revealing the transformative nature of a single space.
