Contrasting forms – One word Sunday Challenge – Contrast

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One word Sunday – over to all of you to join the challenge with your own contrast post.

So I have done a couple of contrast posts recently and wondered what I would have for this one.  But a quick look at the albums made me start thinking about this shot, not just the contrast in the shot, but the contrast between the objects.  I am fairly sure that this juxtaposition of solid versus holed objects would be what Barbara Hepworth wanted us to consider.

I felt the most intense pleasure in piercing the stone in order to make an abstract form and space; quite a different sensation from that of doing it for the purpose of realism. – Barbara Hepworth

Nith again – A Photo a Week Challenge: Contrasting Colors

In this weeks challenge Nancy asks us to share a picture or two with contrasting colours.

Contrasting colors are colors that are on approximately opposite side of the color wheel. Yellow and purple, green and red, blue and orange, and a myriad of variations in-between each of those. Contrasting colors compliment each other and give interest and variety to images.

So here is a shot taken during last years visit to Dumfries and Galloway, when we went for an evening wander along the side of the river Nith, in Glencaple.  I love the way the sunset oranges contrasted against the blue still left in the sky, and threw a deeper blue cast over the landscape.
