The Edges of the Day – Sunset on Inle Lake

This is the second part of the Inle Lake Edges of the Day series.  These photos were taken around sunset during two evenings spent out on the water.

It was a lot of fun working with the falling light levels and exposing to reveal different amounts of detail from pure black silhouettes to overexposed reflections in the water.  Many different ways to shoot these scenes, I could stay there for another couple of weeks and not get bored just working with these guys.

    • Hi Jasmine,
      Thank you for asking for permission to use one of my images. That respect of the work of others is much appreciated.

      As long as the image is not used for commercial purposes or mass reproduction, then I am happy to grant you a limited use license for your school project. I have sent you a higher resolution file than is on the webpage. It should be a large enough file to suit most purposes.

      If you could send a final image or slideshow (depending on the format your project takes), I would love to see the final product.

      Best of luck with your art.

      By the by, I used to live in Nelson Bay and in Bourke so I’m quite partial to Australia. I haven’t been back in years but my cousin is getting married in Victoria next October so I hope to make it back.

    • Hi Brian,

      Just back from a short trip to the mountains – sorry for the delayed response. Thank you for touring around my work and for your kind words. I really enjoyed looking through your images on Flickr. The winter season shots of the Atlantic coast are beautiful. I’m eager to get out that way. All the best to you.
