Captured by the Incredible

05.07.2009 // Day 129


License this image.


It seems I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream-sensation, that commingling of absurdity, surprise, and bewilderment in a tremor of struggling revolt, that notion of being captured by the incredible which is the very essence of dreams...


-- Joseph Conrad (The Heart of Darkness)


I don't think I'm capable of communicating exactly how pleased I am with this photo. It pretty much came out perfectly first time, without me really knowing what I was doing. Also, it's one of the first photos I've taken since reaching a higher understanding of my camera, so I'm extra-extra chuffed!


Inspiration came in the form of Libby reading too many stories about Scandinavian Myths and researching the 'old ways', as well as wanting to revisit whatever had prompted me to take this photo.
