“Don’t you have enough photos from that place?”A question I am often asked by Erin Doors (my wife). Well, many experienced landscape photographers will tell you that when you find a great scene, you must return to it as often as you can. And it’s true, because in landscape photography you’ll find many a fleeting moment. A good example of this is a view that I often photograph and because I can, I go back to it on a fairly regular basis. I recently visited it twice in one week, and even than there was a clear difference. It’s a view of the Church of Saint Peter in the Slovenian town of Komenda. The viewpoint however, is actually not from the town itself, but from just outside a nearby town called Moste. The photo below was shot on Sept 5th. The field between the corn was glowing in the light, and the colour a beautiful bright, light brown.
One week laterI shot the photo below today (Sept 13th). Just one week later and that lovely bright colourful field in the middle has now changed to dark brown.
Earlier this year in JulyBack in July this was how it looked.
At dawn on morning many years ago
