A few weeks ago I took advantage of Adorama's sale on large metallic prints and ordered up a 20x30 of this shot...all I can say is 'wow'. I\f you all wanted a print from me or ever thought about purchasing one of my images I have to say that this one makes a dang brilliant shot to hang! It isn't often I speak highly of my own work but this time with this shot? It's an exception. It really looks incredible printed large! About the image---
Tranquility. It is one of the things I seem to chase after besides light a great deal when photographing. Smaller, more intimate scenes that I imagine many would otherwise look over. This spot has long been a favorite location of mine, there is just something about it. I have never really gotten a Fall photo though worth much though until this year. See, here in Colorado, just before sunrise (when I am often shooting) we have this thing we call "the solar mountain breeze (among other things depending on your level of frustration at the time lol) in which the breeze picks up. It usually starts 30 minutes before sunrise and can make shots like this next to impossible. I lucked out with it on the morning when I photographed this. Big time. It was completely still for once, with the gentle breeze only being caused from the water rushing by. Technical stuff---
Sony a550, Minolta 18-200mm lens, stacked Fotodiox CPL and ND8, about 3.5 seconds at f14, tripod and wireless shutter release. Also anchored my backpack on the center column hook for more stability. Other than that? Video of location I shot while photographing this---
I shot a quick little cell phone vid of us shooting this scene [link]
if you would care to check it out, a little shaky as the light was low
