“The biggest cliché in photography is sunrise and sunset.” – Catherine Opie.
How sad that two of nature’s most beautiful parts of the day should be reduced to photographic clichés, unoriginal and overused. Fortunately for me, I still get a real buzz out of them whenever I’m fortunate enough to witness either of them while armed with a camera (usually my phone!).
The image above was taken at sunrise, floating above the Valley of the Kings in a hot air balloon, looking back over the Nile to Luxor. Not a cliché in sight, in my opinion!
Happy Friday Eve everyone xx
