Urban landscapes: empty and waiting for dawn
THE PIER AT LAKEVIEW PARK, OSHAWA, ONTARIO
The dramatic lighting and dark, empty spaces attracted me to this site on the Canadian side of Lake Ontario. I have photos from later in the morning when the inky blackness gave way to dim light, but the contrast and minimalism really work for me. There is some colour in this scene, specifically the light at the end of the pier (an off-green), but going black-and-white emphasizes a distraction-free minimalist approach.
