DLWS NH Day3b AM

The light came out and so did the color. We headed down Hwy112 to a couple of our favorite vista and rocked the house! Simply gorgeous. I just love this kind of landscape photography, telephoto. I simply look through the viewfinder, slowly pan the hillside looking for great patterns and go click. Just stunning! This movie requires Flash Player 9 This movie requires Flash Player 9 This movie requires Flash Player 9 This is where long lens technique came into play though. We had quite a wind and the only way to make the shot was to keep that lens from bucking. Finishing was real simple, add a little black in ACR and done. I just love this simple kind of shooting.

I didn’t have time to grab my shade which would helped a little, because to make the images, I had to shoot towards the sun. Without the shade, I got some flare. This movie requires Flash Player 9 Nope, you aren’t going to see any of those little green globes with this flare, but a loss of contrast and color. I didn’t worry about it though.

This movie requires Flash Player 9 During the night the heavens opened up on us and didn’t stop until dark. No matter, we went out shooting any hoo and were greatly rewarded. We went back to the trestle and with the rain, it was even better. Now, how was I going to make the image? I had plenty of on site time to think about it since there is only one spot that is dead center in the tracks. So I stood, waited an thought. The way I ended up doing it and liking the results was this HDR “tilted” image. I just wanted a little in focus and then let the lines do the rest. This movie requires Flash Player 9 With the rain came wet rocks everywhere. This made this photograph possible because otherwise, all the rocks on the side of the river would have been white, ugly and a visual eyesore. This is a 6 image – image. The base for all the trees and sky...
