09.22.2020 Below Sunrise

Shortly after Sunday’s sunrise to the north image, I spun the camera to the east. The sky was interesting but the fog was more so and I zoomed the 100-400 in to capture the effect of the illumination.

Had the sun kissed the tops of those foggy peaks with color I might have kept it, but that did not happen so with little color noticeable I went to monochrome which I think works well here.

This is a common sight from this vantage point but on this morning I found the fog more appealing with the capture of its motion.

    Good call, and a stirring result. I especially like the three waves at left.

  2. Looking at the photograph surrounded by white in a room with the lights off, I didn’t see the details in the dark parts of the image until I clicked to enlarge. I’d been about to ask whether you’d thought of cropping a strip off the bottom to make more of a panorama.

    I like it – the wave action of the fog reveals its movement.

    The fog on the left resembles Kelvin-Helmholzt clouds — nice catch!

    • There was little color to speak of in the trees so it seemed a natural conversion.I wanted to emphasize the fog so monochrome was the path I chose. There was some bold color above but I felt the lower was more interesting.

    Monochrome definitely works well for this one. It almost takes on an abstract look. Nicely done.
