.. at evening tide, and before a bit of weather.
What gorgeous, gorgeous light …
Thanks once again. This image is actually a sandwich of several (perhaps you know of HDR). At one extreme, images are over-exposed (for detail in the dark areas) … at the other, they are under-exposed (for detail in the bright areas), and several images are included in the normal range of exposure. All of the properly exposed bits are combined in the sandwich to produce this result. I’m glad you liked it.
It’s interesting to hear that. I haven’t ever done that process – I do a fair amount in post processing sometimes, but don’t layer photos there either. Thanks for explaining!
When I read your title, I thought immediately of Throgs Neck in the Bronx. I realized I didn’t have a clue what a ‘neck’ might be. Now I know it’s a narrow spit of land, and you’ve clearly found your way to the edge of one here. I especially like the texture in the large boulder and the pebbles scattered around.
I’m curious which of your cameras you used. I read on Steve G’s blog that you have a GX1 Mark II now. I recently came into possession of one, from a friend who got bored with photography and was willing to trade the camera for a guitar that I had. I’ve not done a thing with the Mark II. It’s seemed a little awkward to me: not so intuitive. But maybe I need to sit myself down and learn how to navigate its mysteries. If nothing else, it might be a good backup. I got the feeling you enjoy yours — is that so?
Absolutely. Absolutely. I love, love, love it! I use mine exclusively in its manual mode. I’ve also assigned the aperture as the camera’s ring function. So, when I’m shooting I adjust aperture with that ring, and make adjustments to shutter speed and ISO using the touch screen. I never, ever, thought I’d like using a LCD to make photographic adjustments … but I do. Being able to see, in real time, what’s going on is great and takes all of the guesswork out of exposure control. The thing has a pretty good sized sensor and shutter speeds down to 30 seconds (I believe). Slap it on a tripod and you can use the (digital) neutral density filter and timer to make very long exposures. It’s just like the big cameras. Now, having said that – for extreme, extreme, detail (especially up close) – you gotta stay with big cameras and their big lenses. When I first got the G7X Mark II I was a bit overwhelmed too … but then I took a lesson out of my own book and simply played with the thing. I tried automatic, aperture priority, shutter priority, and the full manual. As I’ve already said … full manual is wonderful. Please ask if you’ve got any specific questions. D
David, this photograph is magnificent. The colors and dynamics are so dramatic! Excellent job!
Very nice! It’s good to see you back after so long.
Thanks … it’s nice to be working with the camera again. Thanks for checking in.
Thanks very much. I hope it lasts, for a do enjoy working with the camera and with this site.
Very nice, David. Lovely time of the day, although I prefer 12 hours the opposite … I was quite possibly in bed when you took this one.
What? No way. It is you who had earned the title ‘King of the Quabbin Sunrise.’ Take another look at 04.03.17, 01.07.17, and especially 11.05.16!
Totally true … well about my being up for sunrise although king is debatable. But … this is at sunset, no?
Yes indeed – mea culpa! Why did I read ‘I was quite possibly in bed,’ to mean you were sleeping AM?
I do that sort of reading typo all the time. I now consider myself in good company.
The time of day and the opposing weather systems provide for a lovely result. I can just imagine dipping my toes in this clear, cool water. This image is alive!
Your seascapes are among my favorites. Gorgeous.
