|The Hidden Valley of Dun Morogh|
There are moments when travelling that even I, the hardened WoW Landscape photographer that I am, get truly stunned by the beauty of the vistas that I find. One such moment happened to me not that long ago as I was exploring the Hidden Valley of Dun Morogh that lies behind Gnomeregan. It was late afternoon and the sunlight on the mountains and shining through the trees really moved me. It's times like these that I know that the developers really care about this world and how it looks, which gives me a nice, warm squishy feeling down in the cockles of my stony, dwarven heart.
Given the fact that winter has finally arrived where I live, this image is appropriate. It's another image exploring abstraction and motion - although this one is a little easier to figure out what it is. The high-key background and false blue colour that I have imposed upon it make me think of frigid winter temperatures, but also reminds me that there is a great deal of beauty in the winter, if you're willing to look for it. Ironically, this image was taken on a lovely end-of-summer day when the temperature was sitting at about 25C.
Angelya over at Revive and Rejuvenate has come up with another Challenge that I, as a Photographer and self-styled Visual Artist, am very excited about. It's IntPiPoMo, or International Picture Posting Month. As a picture is worth 1,000 words, the goal for this challenge is to post 50 pictures during the month of November. I will be posting 25 Images of Azeroth and 25 photographs or art projects that I have been working on personally (and no baby photos, sorry ladies). As well, I will be posting commentary and context with each image.
