After the storm…

Yesterday we had a wonderful morning of fog after the night’s rain storm.  I have driven by this location many times in the past, made note of its potential, and finally got myself over there after the morning’s usual parental duties!  Unfortunately, I started out with the wrong lens so I lost some good light making the short dash back to my vehicle to grab my Canon 24mm Tilt Shift lens.  Happily, the fog was still great as I exposed this image.  The lens was shifted up to near its highest position to maintain proper perspective and avoid convergence of the trees.  Also, I positioned the sun so that it was mostly blocked by the tree, with just a tiny bit of light showing through my viewfinder.

Enjoy!   Bill

Last week, my family and I traveled to the Monterey coast for a short vacation.  I returned to one of my favorite subjects there – the endangered Monterey Pines.  Very fortunately, there was  thick fog that makes this subject so appealing to me.  This image is made of three frames, Merged to Panoramic in Photoshop.

We have many more images to edit and process, so stay tuned for more.

One thing I did learn – I am out of practice!  I made so many mistakes.  Sometimes it feels like the movie Groundhog Day – making the same mistakes over and over.  Got to get out to photograph more often!
