Default Evening on the Nooksack

went up pokin' around the Cascade foothills yesterday.. still processing most of the stuff i got, but here's a shot of the South Fork, Nooksack River taken just before i headed home... light was about gone. one of these days, i'll remember to get this shot earlier in the day, when there's more light to work with... 5D2, 24-105 @ 24mm, 1.6 sec @ f/14...

G'day Rocky

Love the image mate - my genre too
cc if I may ... this time of day is -perfect- for running water shots ... less light = longer exposures [great]
I also set WB to 'cloudy' to increase the colours of the foliage & mosses

Regards, Phil

thanks, Phil...

yeah, i like shooting later in the day for running water... but this was taken about 9 PM, so the light was pretty far gone. i did have the WB set to "cloudy". it doesn't increase the saturation, but it does "warm up" the image a bit and makes it look more "summery" - i tend to do that quite often when shooting landscapes.

G'day Rocky

You're still using "daylight" at 9pm ... omg
I guess that you must be fairly up [north] in the latitudes to get "photographicable" light at that time of evening

ps- enjoyed your gallery
Regards, Phil

thanks, Phil! yeah, it doesn't get dark here till after 9PM in summer. of course, in winter, it's dark by 5... and darker still because most of the time in winter, it's heavy overcast and/or raining. we're at about 47' N latitude, so the difference between summer and winter is pretty marked.

G'day Rocky

47-north ... crickey mate
Our island of Tasmania as the southern-most part of aussie is only 41-south
and after that it gets bloody cold & wet & miserable and -etc etc

I spoze we make up for it in that the northernmost part of Aussie is almost at the equator - so generally we have very pleasant weather all year round

Regards, Phil

"bloody cold & wet & miserable and -etc etc"

pretty well sums up winter here... not much snow, but lots of dreary, drippy, dismal days from November through April... then in summer, the rain gets warmer!
