turn your face to the sun – maori proverb, and photography

stone circle at sunset, Ireland

stone circle at sunset, Ireland

“Turn your face to the sun and all the shadows fall behind you!”…Maori Proverb; the quote is perfect for photographers, unless of course we want our shadow in the picture; when photographing people it is better if they are facing away from the sun as well.

We visited Ireland a few years ago now, I stopped at every stone circle we found, there are more being found all the time.  This photo was taken at sunset, the sun flare over the circle and through the large gap of standing stones a some depth and some magic. The photo would have been taken near the end of September, close to the time of the fall equinox, and we can image watching the sunset or sunrise as those who built the circle did many years ago.

It is Wednesday of another busy week, I hope your weeks is a good one filled.
