Here are a couple of images from April 12. I had been hoping to catch the sunrise through the fog over the Quabbin’s water, but it was so thick that my visualization just wasn’t going to happen. So I went around the cove and did some scouting for another day when I noticed this point of the shoreline sticking out into the fog.After a few minutes the fog began to thin and warm light from the rising sun hit the inner cove and I made this image which I find particularly satisfying.There are no questions about choosing monochrome for this one. 🙂
On Facebook recently, I shared someone else’s image of a crowd of photographers waiting for the sun to rise while they stood behind an arch out west…about to capture an iconic sunrise image that has been shot thousands of times. While each day is different and each photographer’s technique is different, the idea of making an image similar to that which has been done thousands of times is not appealing to me. It is possible that another local photographer has made a similar image to one of these but less likely and therefore much more personal for me and, I feel, better for sharing with others.
So no getting away without a question. 🙂
Do you see an ad at the bottom of this post? If you do, is it bothersome? Should I spend $30 to not have ads here? Hah…3 questions for the price of one. 😀
