Discussion in 'Landscape' started by DavidTriplett, Jun 11, 2019.

  1. You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension.

    After last week's discussion of rock monsters, this one of Goblin Valley State Park is for Ludmilla:

    Sadly, there were heavy clouds, pending rain, and very flat light. La Sal Mountains south-east of Moab in the background.

    Here's a complementary color scheme to David's post, from yesterday morning on our local river

  4. Pre-dawn landscape and reflection, interrupted by take-off, LOL..

  5. In the grey shrowded pre-dawn drizzle shortly after high tide Seal Rock feels like another world. Cormorants were always sitting on the craggy edges. The only sounds were waves crashing on rocks and lapping the beach, birds, and the voice in the back of my head asking how long I would sit in the rain. Answer? Till the coffee cup is empty.

  7. Another day at the ocean in Oregon. I have heard that there is actually sun on the ocean ... sometimes. Looking down at the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse from the top of the trail. P5271342_HDR.jpg

    Taken on a bike ride last week in eastern Idaho when we stopped to put on a rain jackets. It was just starting to rain. I used my waterproof Olympus TG 4, which does pretty good, especially when it is raining. Image quality would have been better if I had used my Canon 5D IV, but that would have been unreasonable to carry on a bike ride.

  10. David, I suspect, by examining your image, that you handled the ambient lighting quite well.

  11. Shot recently on top of Timothy Hill, one of the tallest spot\s on St. Kitts (Caribbean island)

  12. Laura, as many times as I've visited this spot, I've never managed an image which so perfectly captures the look and feel of the place. Granted, sunny and bright are wonderful, but, as you note, this is much more "real". Very nicely done! Now I have to reconsider what is doable and what is not.
  13. Thank you, Michael. You are too kind.
  14. Thank you David. I really wish I had an umbrella that morning as it was raining for real in about 20 minutes. The image is about 90% of what I wanted, so I'm happy with it as I don't do much of this kind of photography. I got up before 5am, checked the tide table, looked outside, felt drizzle, sighed a bit, poured coffee, donned a rain coat, grabbed the camera bag, and went to the beach.....all perfectly doable. :)

    I also think you made good use of flat light. Sometimes it is your friend. I was grateful for it at Devil's Punchbowl.

  15. For Laura and Rick, proof that the sun does occasionally shine on the Oregon coast:

    Note the looming marine layer behind which the sun is setting, just waiting for the chance to return this coast to its normal, foggy self.:rolleyes:
  16. OMG.....there it is!

    I used to live in Waldport so I have seen the sun on Alsea Bay once or twice. The one sunny day we had on the trip was spent at Cape Perpetua and we made good use of it. Stay tuned.

  18. Tony, this is a quite different landscape from that you posted on Monochrome Monday June 10. It looks like the sea level has dropped considerably! There were boats parked in what now appears to be a field. I'd love to hear what caused this dramatic difference.

    Wells 'harbour' is now about a mile from the sea, in an area of very low-lying mud flats and salt marshes, with a sea wall on the West, which occasionally gets breached. The difference is merely the tide going out - both images taken within an hour (the intervening time being used for a wrestling match with a large, friendly Alsatian !). As the land is flat and low-lying, water depth is a constant problem for yachts, and the larger commercial vessels can no longer access the staithe.

    The photo was also taken from a different viewpoint, so that the boats from the other image are now out of sight to the left of this image.
