08.08.2015 Mount Monadnock from Enfield Lookout-take two

This is more what I was thinking my previous attempt should have looked like.  I’m still thinking that I’d like to get a clear shot with no trees and after the light was over I think I found another perspective that will provide me with just that image.  But I am happy enough with this one.  There is still something I wish was different, but I ain’t sayin’.  🙂

  1. What a great peachy color for that cloud.
    There may still be trees in the foreground, but at least now they don’t cut into the line of the yonder shore. Things are getting better.
    Looking forward to abstractions.

    Ths reminds me so so much of the view we had in HK, Steve. You didn’t find yourself in Sai Kung by mistake did you?

    When I was a boy in Michigan, I loved the travel films made by Stan Midgley, who appeared numerous times on George Pierrot Presents (out of Detroit), and one of his tricks was to stick a piece of cotton onto his windshield and shoot through it, making it appear to be a cloud in just the right place in the sky. You wouldn’t have come across any of his travelogues at any time, would you? Just wondering…

    This is wonderful. It’s my favorite of them all. I think the cloud is gorgeous, of course, and I like that the trees are still there. But, just to show I can change my mind, I will say that I think this lesser fringe of trees is better.

    What I really like is the reflection of the peachy cloud in the water, just off the point. It’s a nice, subtle detail.

    • I am glad that you see what I was trying for as an improvement, Linda. So glad that I just uploaded this and the one from New Salem onto FineArtAmerica. I am hoping you bring me luck. 🙂
      I was happy that the reflection, subtle as it is, would be noticeable. The water was pretty choppy, so I used a longish exposure to smooth it a bit and was afraid that the reflection might not work, but it does. Of course the sky and mountain are the prime objects, but it’s the small details that sometimes make an image.


  5. Stunning. I love them both.

  6. The beautiful cloud seems to be hanging over the scene. This is beautiful and one that I had missed.
