“We live ‘between’. There is always before and after, but we are between when we are in the present. ” – Ed Lehming

In the present, we experience everything that the world has to offer. All that has passed fades to memory and all that lies ahead is an unknown.

This image was part of a series of shots I made two days ago as I was driving home from a friend’s house. The previous image “Y Road Dusk” was a ‘middle’ shot when the light was at its peak. This image was made a minute or so later, as the light shifted significantly.

Sunsets always fascinate me. They seem to take a long time to really develop the brilliant colours and then it quickly accelerates and it’s gone, yet each aspect of the event is unique. This between time offered me beautiful, soft orange tones, hints of blue shadow, and darker shadows, providing a wonderful contrast.

As I processed the image, I had considered increasing the show, but I would have lost too much of the subtle background detail and really wanted to stay true to what I was seeing. So, I have a fairly accurate representation of that moment, in the present, now past. The time between fiery orange light of sunset and the blue shadow of dusk.
