Elements series No 3; Water

Elements No 3; Water

For the third in my series Life and Elements, I have taken a dead-still sea and added overlays of moving water to provide the contrast. The sunset was originally taken from a shot through trees and I intended to exclude the trees completely, however they provided such a good structural component I had to include them – the way they show in the picture is quite ambiguous – it could either be tree-stumps rising from the water’s edge, or a splash of water on a window pane. That’s for the viewer to decide. The Chest X-ray is reduced to wispy lines drifting over the image like a rising mist – the gridded texture within the lines is interesting; the image is greatly magnified and shows the X-ray grid – a technical part of the examination used to improve the image and not usually visible.
