Wednesday Landscapes, 9 September 2020

Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Sep 9, 2020.

  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.

    Here's another one that relies mostly on textures, with an assist from color. The white frosting on the sand is pulverized shells--I don't see that very often on these beaches.

  4. The wildfires in Oregon are explosive now and the effects locally are profound. High winds Monday night brought heavy smoke and 3 new fires to the costal county where we are. Travel was discouraged. Conditions were complicated by downed trees and communication was hampered by outages of power, internet, cable. Radio stations went silent. It's also unusually warm. In the morning I walked to the bay at low tide.

    By noon the sky darkened with more smoke and ash was visible on surfaces. Good thing we're required to wear masks. This was taken on 101 in Yachats yesterday. This morning it's still very warm, breezy, and smokey. Feels like Yachats, looks like Mars.

  8. Wow, Laura, I'm sorry to hear that you may be at greater risk due to the wildfires. It's ironic that the fires are of photographic value.

  12. Thanks for your concern, but fret not. Conditions locally have improved somewhat and the closest fire was contained quickly. At the northern end of the county fire continues. Further inland and towards Portland are the largest fires. I've quit taking "smokey air" images as it feels empty, knowing that so much devastation is on the other end. The list of things to get accomplished on this trip is much shorter, but we need to maintain a positive outlook. In the meantime I'm getting to know the coves and tidal areas around Yachats better than I ever imagined and photography is now centered there.
