Wasp nest (revisited at twilight)

This is a photograph of the same wasp nest I posted earlier, just taken from a different angle, in a bold silhouette that starkly contrasts with the whitish-blue background of a forest at twilight. The negative space created by the branches and nest make for a very cool, almost anonymous, organic design. As unmoving as the nest appears, it is lightweight and paper thin, ironically a formidable match for the forces of wind, rain, sleet and snow.

I have always been refreshed by artists like Monet who painted cathedrals and haystacks at different times during the day to capture whole new ‘impressions’ of light. While paintings or photographs (taken during the day and night) may depict the same subject matter, they evoke different emotions and diversify the way we perceive the world. I hope this photo has made you more aware of the slightest metamorphoses of texture, hues, depth and light that occur from dusk until dawn!
