New Every Morning

New Every Morning
Copyright ©2006, Mark Johnson ¤ $

Well this week I have been working on improving my last image of this same spot "New Life"

I had been shooting here for about 15 mins or so on my way to work, as morning light was best for this location, and was starting to walk back to my car, dissapointed that the light was stuck behind the clouds when I took one more look back to see the light burst through, landing square on the hills. I rushed back and setup and got this one. It only lasted for 2-3 shots before going back behind the clouds.

Don't have Exif handy so this is pretty much a guess.

I do prefer this one, because you caught a "difficult" light. The sweet curves and the warm colours of the grass and of the hill give me a sense of peace. Well done. This monitor isn't so good to say if it could have been a bit sharper.

hand held, this early in the morning? Maybe so, I'm just surprised...:o)

Much better lighting, Mark, it will be extra pretty when you get a morning with a beautiful blue sky to compliment the warm grass AND the sculpting sunrise on those hills...:o)

I like the itty bitty...cows??...buffalo??on that closest rise..:o)

Just my two cents...:o)

He he.... no Monica you are right ... without my morning coffe i would never have been able to hand hold this... i ALWAYS use a tripod my hands arn't that steady.

Here is the info F16, 83mm, 1/5s

I did like the light better but you are right about the clouds they didn't yet have that pop, the cows I wasn't so sure of in the other shots where they are a bit more clumped together. But here they are in a line and it wasn't too bad. I debated cloning them out.

Bruno, Thank you for your comments also. I love difficult light :)
