The trip, that is. Some things were planned, some things we stumbled across, some things were done on a whim. When I attended a photo workshop back in 2008 some of the things were easy. For example, the leaders of the workshop knew the better places, had connections to private property owners, and so on. When doing a trip yourself some places are obvious… lighthouses and waterfalls, for example… but many are not. You’re on your own. Lakes for tree reflections are not quite so obvious. You take your chances.
In this case I needed something to do for a morning shoot, so I looked on a map and found a lake. My hunches said it had possibilities, and some online photos looked promising. So, we got up before sunrise and headed out, about 30 miles from our hotel.
We weren’t disappointed. We kept to a relatively small area at a public boat ramp and worked it pretty good. The sunrise itself wasn’t anything to speak of, but the reflections and other aspects were indeed worthy. The fence was an added bonus.
More stories and images to come. Stay tuned. 🙂
