Composition of Lines

Composition of Lines

My intent was simple enough; compose a composition of LINES, lines in this case that would be comprised of vertical trees that lined a narrow country lane in West Friesland Holland, vertical lines against the solid blue color of the northern sky, a blue sky in marked contrast to the long horizontal RED line composed near the bottom third of the frame, oh my, and with the subtle, albeit small, bonus of a lone yellow mustard plant; not a ‘trifecta’ of color, these three, red, yellow and blue, but rather a composition (2nd Image) of TRIADEC color, (three colors that form a triangle on the color wheel when a line is drawn from one to the other)...seconds had only past, several exposures were already made when the loud roar and rumbling sound of a once distant vehicle could be heard to my left, a farm vehicle perhaps, but oh my, coming into view, quickly, it is an unexpected HUGE farm vehicle, an “almost too wide” for this narrow road vehicle, an as it enters the frame “you keep shooting”, and WHOOSH, a welcomed industrial strength brushstroke of color brings an energy dynamic into an otherwise perhaps too quiet, too ‘lazy’ of a composition that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. Three cheers for the unplanned, the unexpected!!!
