Default After the storm

We had a quick and powerful storm roll through tonite. So I thought I would head out and see if anything magical happened in the aftermath, but no spectacular lighting/rainbows, or anything of the sort happened tonite. But I decided to shoot a little anyways.

You may not have caught lightning or rainbows but you did capture a magical moment. I always gravitate toward cloudy scenes which add drama and mood to any landscape. You also captured just enough pinkish colour to keep my eye looking along the horizon.....might I also add, how straight that horizon line is, good job. ;0)

As we are quickly approaching a full moon on the 23rd, go out in this week sometime around 10pm, get an ND filter and shoot a 2 to 3 minute shot. Try and bring in some moving cloud patterns complimented by a silky water surface.

Thanks Kevin. I always love the dramatic cloudy skies as well, was hoping for some storms in the distance, etc, next time and yea, i know if my horizon isn't straight, Mark will get out his ruler and tell me in fraction of degrees how far off it is

thanks for the lunar update, i will get out next week and see what i can get. too bad its a little difficult to get to the shore at night here, its either private property or state parks which close at 11.

the shot is tilting to the right just a hair, lol

The cloud capture is outstanding. Very powerful shot even without the lighting or rainbows as spy said.

thanks guys. s/t i think as we discussed its some curvature not a true tilt.

ronin- yea, its a favorite spot, close to my home. look forward to keep shooting it in different conditions and seasons. and maybe catch as storm out over the water or something someday.

Yeah yeah, very funny....... but at least I keep you all on your toes, just think of me as quality control for horizons

I like the shot, great drama and of course the composition is strong as well. A cool location to live near, I think you will soon be able to do a 'many moods of the lake' series as you've gone through the year.

Pretty sure it will be the kit lens that Dustin has on..... he can confirm when he's online.

As for the shots, honestly a lot of it is the skill of the photographer and the PP that is done. Dustin is a great landscape photographer (don't get big headed Dustin), how also knows how to get the best out of Photoshop to help an already good photo become great.

Check out some of his earlier shots with the EPL1

Nice one, Dustin

The path (and its slight curve) draws my eye nicely in.

Love the subtle colours too. Very natural feel to it.

What is the white on the path? (sea salt/ spray residue?)

Looking at this photo, I thought it was quite a long exposure, I checked the exif and I was right.. 4 seconds. Cool.

I hope you'll get your storm again next time with some lightning, etc.

Cheers

Paul
