Composition: Triangles

One of the first things in photography you learn is composition so we are going back to basics to start off the new year - triangles in your composition. In construction, triangles are one of the strongest shapes because any force is evenly spread throughout all three sides. Subconsciously our brains associate triangles with strength. When presented base down they give an impression of stability and upended, an impression of instability.

This month's challenge is to submit up to three images that best show triangles in your composition - either showing strength and stability or instability. I have included a couple of articles to explain triangular composition and examples.
