Lost in Sun and Fog

Lost in Sun and Fog - A7r2, 70-200 @ 162mm, f/4, 1/250s, ISO 100.
I set out yesterday morning to make some photographs in the Columbia River Gorge area.  There was a good amount of fog which with the rising sun was giving some nice drama.  The structure is Vista House, the view was better from where I was than there.

Early Morning Hikers

Early Morning Hikers - A7r, Leica 90, ~f/2.8, 1/125s, ISO 400.

Even at 6 AM we weren’t the first ones out to Deadvlei.  This group of hikers were making their way to the top of one of the tallest dunes to catch the sunrise.

The Long Shadow

The Long Shadow - Alpa STC, IQ 180, 32 HR, ~f/13, 1/60s, ISO 35, 2 panel stitch.
This is a variant of “Dead Trees, Clay Pan”, one of my portfolio images on my site.  I made this one on the day before I made “Dead Trees, Clay Pan”, and this was one of the last images I made that morning as the sun was now out in full force.  The tones here are different, punchy and vibrant whereas “Dead Trees, Clay Pan” is softer a result of having been made at precise the moment the sun cleared the dune.

Remnant - Alpa STC, IQ 180, 60 XL, ~f/13, 1/8s, ISO 35.

There is virtually no image made at Deadvlei that isn’t interesting to me, a truly unique place.

Separation Line

Separation Line - A7r, Leica 90, ~f/4, 1/2000s, ISO 2500.

At the right moment in dawn the line between shadow and light is very crisply defined.

Big Skies and Dune Ridges

Big Skies and Dune Ridges - A7r, Leica 90, ~f/8, 1/800s, ISO 100.

Another big skies photo.  I liked the layer of dust between the trees in the bottom and the dunes behind.
