I tried to combine colors and geometrical patterns with mood, contrast,depth of field and dimension to create a pleasing and thought- provoking image. I felt that the huge ancient stones in the forefront, together with the staircase, provided a partial frame with which to lead the eye into the picture so as to join the seated onlooker who also provided further interest and perspective. The backdrop of the mountains, contrasting lighting and the gathering rain clouds were deliberately included to add mood, feeling and mysticism.
- Gear: I used Canons EOS Digital Rebel XTI with Canons zoom lens EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS. I also had available Canons EFS 55- 250mm f/4-5.6 IS
