Rowena - First Light

    Newer Older

    Another older image taken back in the spring during the wildflower season up at Rowena. Unless you live down the street from this area, you have to wake up very early to get this golden light. There was a slight breeze, making it hard to get a really sharp shot. This is one of the best of more than 100 shots taken that morning. I was still learning how to use my GND filters at this point and the exposure wasn't all that great. The sky was completely blown out around the sun for this shot, so I just cropped it out...

      Lovely! Cropping out the sun turned out quite nicely otherwise it would have taken attention away from the flowers.
