Ships Passing :: CT

Sometimes, to make a photo outing work with the conditions you’re given, you have to think outside of the box a bit.  I hit the road thinking I’d create a wide-angle landscape shot and ended up striking gold with this intimate landscape instead.

Last month our students focused on minimalism, so the idea of simplifying has been on my mind. This particular sunset, the sky was sort’ve “blah” but the reflecting color was so damn purty. ❤

Settings: 75 mm, f/8, 30 sec, ISO 100

    Beautifully balanced shot, and I love how the pastel colours of the water set off the stones.

      Thanks so much! I’m definitely glad I decided to explore that lake since the image turned out so well. 😊

    Beautiful image . . . It’s fun to go out there with a goal and end doing something totally different.

      It’s a great exercise in creative thinking and flexibility at the very least! 😊

    Oh, yes! That image moves right to the portal in my heart…it is so beautiful, so inviting…it might be dangerous to those not yet prepared. My pleasure, thank you. 🙂
