Tour de France 2020: Stage 12 – Camera in the trees

This first image from Stage 12 was an interesting challenge – I was first attracted by the long peloton disappearing into the trees and the dark shade – lovely lines and contrasts. Then I noticed the cameraman taking his photo on the right – posing the usual problem that artists encounter when painting shadows – Shadows are not black, and when you look carefully, there are just as many details to see in the shadows as there are in the light. Never easy but great to try!
