Autumn Melancholy by Waldemar Blazej Nowak - 24 January 2015

Autumn Melancholy by Waldemar Blazej Nowak iPhone 6, 4.2mm, 1/408secs at f/22, ISO 32 This quiet image was taken by Polish reader Waldemar Blazej Nowak. He uploaded his image to our AP Flickr page. ‘This picture was taken in Chmielno, Poland, on 18 October 2014,’ says Waldemar. ‘I really wanted to explore how I could present the idea of the autumn season. There’s a particular atmosphere associated with autumn. It brings to mind many words, such as grey, emptiness and sadness. ‘The day that we shot this picture was very cold and the sky was relatively cloudless. My friend was standing on the bridge alone. She was just staring into the emptiness ahead of her. As she did so, I realised that I had found my inspiration and took a picture.’
