A Quiet Seclusion

Photo 1 of 2 – So here’s the thing. I’m getting prepared for my upcoming trip and we had lots of things to plan for. My mind can’t settle down from the excitement and I just want to get there as soon as I can. Running through the photos from my previous photo walk certainly didn’t help, and the traveling mood just keep swelling up. And then I found it. I found 2 photos from that walk, that best represent the mood I’m in, and gave that traveling feel an extra touch to it. I’m gonna share both of them this week, and let’s see if it does inspire you to get off your chair and plan for your next trip.

The photo walk location was somewhere off the coast of Singapore, and together with a small group we went on a ferry to get to that island. My goal there was to get some interesting compositions that inspire people to travel, or brings about the feeling of quietness, peaceful and seclusion. The first photo that made it into my selection, was more than 15mins walk from where we started. I setup the tripod, find a composition that reduce the amount of overexposed areas, put on the filters and did a bracketing. I didn’t had any interesting clouds on this side, and the composition was fairly simple – Capturing the gentle curvature at the edge of the island, with lush green trees covering the remaining parts of the inaccessible areas. It’s quiet, seclusive enough to make one feel peaceful, and the combination of trees, sky, water, beach relates very closely to a beach getaway in Asia.

Stay around for the 2nd photo that will be released soon, and I hope you enjoyed the series of stories shared for each photo thus far!
