05.26.2019 Return of the foreground rock

For years I would set up in front of or on the rocks at this overlook.  They were, of course, placed there by safety minded folks so cars would not go over the edge and offered a seat for sunrise worshipers. It does add a bit of interest and completes the composition.  Starbursts don’t hurt either.

This is a two shot HDR.  Even at that the rock was deeply shadowed so some digital  burning made it more balanced.

  1. The ad in the e-mail version of your post that I got this morning included a picture of a guy sitting happily on a rocky beach. It could’ve been you at Acadia:

    For some reason it amuses me that it’s what I presume to be a small slice of stone that’s reflecting the light more brightly, and not the relatively massive rock. It’s not the foreground rock you were referencing in your title, but it’s the one that caught my attention: a chip off the old block, perhaps.

    • It is tempting to change things when composing but generally I avoid that so embraced said chip. In a way it is distracting but also speaks of the situation. I am not sure how it happens to be there as I am sure the large rocks were placed by a piece of equipment. The rock is not broken so it might be from fill or some mischievous visitor.
