I was searching through some old folders on my computer and noticed this image. It was an image I posted a few years ago, but you know, it grabbed my attention again so I thought I’d share it with you for the weekend.
This image was made while on a short walk around our neighborhood. It was a peaceful tranquil evening, without a breeze in the air or a bird in the sky. I happened to have my camera with me and created this image just as the last vestiges of light was leaving the sky.
A bit of Photoshop added to the dramatic sky without spoiling the moment. As I was putting the image together in my mind, I thought the foreground needed just a bit more interest in the very calm pond, so I asked LaDawn to throw a small pebble onto the surface of the water. I have to say, it took a few tries to get the pebble to land in just the right place, but after a few tries, I had the image.
Camera specs; Nikon D1X fitted with Tamron 24-135mm lens at 24mm, F4.5 @1/60 second, ISO 400. Enjoy! –David
P.S. Hey gang, while going back through my blog I just found this other really cool post entitled, “Inspiration Friday - Creating The Emotion - Let The Sun (or Moon) Shine In”. In that post you see 3 more variations on this same image and my thoughts on how the viewer may perceive them. Give it a peek, I think you’ll enjoy the read.
Have a great weekend everybody! -David
