For the past month I’ve been doing daily reconnaissance of the area around my work, slowly building a shoot list for when the weather’s right. Today, while still colder than a well-digger’s knee out there, I made a run to one of the spots I’ve been planning to shoot. The above photo is a result of my noon-hour outing. It’s five photos shot vertically and stitched together to create a grand panoramic of the area. I suspect I’ll be back to try again. The clouds were pretty good today but I know there will be days when they’ll be outstanding. The whole area is fertile for photography if you know where to look, but I tend to be drawn to power lines and huge hydro towers. I plan to shoot a sunrise here but will have to wait until the sun is rising a tad earlier so I can shoot it and then make it to work on time. Or maybe I’ll head up on a Sunday morning. Anyway, hope you like it.
I snapped this photo from my office window this morning. We’re on the second floor so I have a nice vantage point to catch the rising sun. Sadly, there was a lot of reflection from the glass in the shot, but with a little love in Photoshop I was able to rid the photo of most of the reflection. The sky wasn’t quite this dramatic but it certainly was pretty cool. I used Lightroom to dial it up into something cool. Hope you like it.
