WPC: Frame


This week the WordPress photo challenge revolves around the idea of framing:

We frame what we see through our lens. And it tends to be a process, whether you use the golden ratio, the rule of thirds, or just aim for the right balance.

But what about how the world frames itself?

Whether it’s through an actual picture frame, a few stalks of grass, or even the spokes of a bicycle tire, find an alternative frame to the world around you and share what you see!

I was thinking about the way nature frames itself, and had a perfect example of that in mind.  Then before posting this, I read the post of a favourite blogger/photographer, Rob Paine, who has a couple of fine examples of what I was thinking — check his post out here.

So my example is one I took a while back of the view of a valley below some mountains I was driving along.  Not only was the view framed by the natural flow of the ridges, but the clouds had joined in to complete the frame.

  1. This is such a rich photo Kim – there’s so much to gaze into. I find it almost has a meditative effect to it. Now that’s an interesting frame to contemplate… or maybe not. Perhaps I’m best just to enjoy the beauty it brings. Thanks 🙂
