Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast
Day 212 – February 19, 2012
For this week, the photo challenge from the fine folk at WordPress is Contrast.
Here is my entry taken from a flat-bottomed boat on the Peruvian section of the Amazon River.
It had rained earlier in the day and the dark clouds you see in the background is the squall continuing its way east down the river. The downpour threatened our trip to a rescue center where we would see monkeys, toucans, anacondas, and a sloth, but it did pass and we were able to enjoy the animals (pictures for a later post, I promise).
The obvious contrasts in this photo are:
…Land vs. Water
…Water vs. Air
…Dark vs. Light
To me, the unseen contrast in this photograph is the fact that I am using man-made technology to capture and share the wonders of the natural world.
(Did I just overthink that?)
