Photographer's Note

This is the largest abstract I ever uploaded. It is one of the slopes of the mine pit "Stora stöten" in Falun. Taken from the same place as yesterdays posting but turning the camera a bit to the right and down.

You can see how dumping of waste material back into the pit over the years have formed three bands of different color and texture, one with brown boulders, one with a beige fine grained material and the third with a sulphur colored soil.

To understand the scale, the thin line in the beige material is a timber staircase with some parts of the handrail still standing. So the vertical distance from the steps to the handrail is about one meter.

The sun helped me a bit with the colors, postprocessing was quite modest, just a little contrast and levels.

I have been whriting so much about diagonal compositions in my critiques without making any myself so I thought it was time to deliver.
