Photo101: Home


After meeting my daughter in Amsterdam for 5 days (the reason I disappeared from Blogging201), I returned home early this morning to a suddenly wintery Israel. Our plane landed in near darkness at 5 a.m. and this was the scene that greeted me as I left the terminal.

  1. Lovely, moody sky. I agree, this doesn’t look heavily edited; just a nice clear shot of ‘real’ sky. I am wondering how much of the ‘mood’ filters they will want us to use for our assignments. I am fond of using filters, at times.

    1. I think that decision is up to you and maybe playing with filters will be part of the assignments! It certainly will be fun to stretch our wings there as well.

  2. I like it. I like the colour scheme of the whole photo. Is that Ben Gurion?

    For a person who’s never been there, it’s difficult to imagine a «wintry» Israel, but I do remember seeing Tel Aviv got some snow last year :)

    1. Hi Rebekah! Only a bit of the edge of the airfield in the foreground. Thankfully, our winter is limited to 40 days and 40 nights. :D Here on the coast it rarely gets cold enough for snow, but there are other places that get snow every year.

  3. Jen, I love the pastels you caught near the horizon. I keep trying to wake up early enough to catch our morning sky, but I think I need to wait another month or two until sunrise happens late enough that I’m awake for it. :)

    1. Thanks, Rachel. This was entirely a serendipitous shot since my plane home was delayed by over an hour and a half. If the plane had taken off on time, I’d have missed this shot!

  4. Great shot, JenT! I love seeing everyone’s interpretations and I look forward to more… the sky is particularly amazing. I love sky shots.

      1. Other than the completeness and the composition of the picture with respect to the theme, like the fact that it does not look heavily edited and for me as a beginner it is important to focus on photography more than editing.

        1. Thanks again. I strive for that with every single photo. If I edit at all, it’s usually to crop, sharpen or to adjust the levels. From time to time I might go crazy and use a photo effect. :)
