Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Stone Hands

Hands can be very expressive. Even ones made of stone.

As you can surely have guessed, this image is from my cemetery series. I went out last Saturday as it was wonderfully warm and nicely overcast and I decided to explore another local cemetery that doesn't open until after 10 AM on the weekends.  During the summer the sun was too high in the sky by that time to get nice photos in wide open areas. Though I hate the winter cold, the benefit for photography is that the sun is lower in the sky making for better photographic conditions (in general) later into the day.  When it is both winter and warm......well, you get the best of both worlds!
