Sunrise shoot what you get.....
When we arrived there were already some photographers from our group who had climbed to the grassy high point in order to get the best elevation for sunrise. I could see their faint silhouettes against the predawn sky. I hiked up through the grasses as well. The sunrise was not spectacular but it was a pretty pastel pink, with very few clouds; with the blue mountains and the green grasses as companions to sunrise, I went into swipe mode....just a wash of colors and shapes. After the sun came up I walked through the meadow a little and made some images of meadow flowers and barbed fence. I knew those images were not strong enough to stand on their own, but the light was soft and the scene serene and I was there to shoot the morning scene. The fence image is a layer blend of meadow flowers and fence line. The opening image is two images created in a burst of shots in swipe mode then processed into a side by side on black canvas to make the single image.
After shooting a little more there, we headed to Crabtree Falls for a quick look...before heading back for breakfast at 8:30 and the rest of the day's shooting ramble........which is another blog!
