Fishers Blu - Landscape Sale - February 2017
It's a humid morning in July of 2013, when I stepped out of my vehicle and grabbed my camera bag and tripod, hoping for a beautiful morning sunrise. I was heading toward the fishing pier at Leesylvania State Park. It's always something to hold your breath for and wait to see what nature will unfold.
I was a bit more than disappointed to see that the sky wasn't cooperating and all the clouds took the day off. Regardless, I was determined. I had decided that I wanted a shot of the pier straight on. I set up my tripod, dialed in my camera and waited. It's still dark.... real dark. Landscape photography is all about patience and finding the light. The former, I was running low on.
In a matter of moments, the dark sky began to burn away into the morning sun. Now, I like my water to be silky smooth in my photos so I extended my shutter speed out to fifteen seconds. Yup, that'll do it.
Click! waiting.... waiting.... it's a long fifteen seconds.
When the "out of camera" image showed itself on the little three-inch screen on my camera, I was pleased. It wasn't until a few hours later that I realized that I also had a beautiful streak of PINK!?! Wait, what?!
I don't know how Mother Nature does it, but I'm glad that she does!
