Rocks and Things

June 06, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Our world is imbued with wonder that sometimes knocks you over the head.  Yes, I would love to travel to the distant regions of the world and always have access to the wonders.  However, there are times when you are heading down a trail in a nondescript area and you see a stone wall with patterns embedded in rock.  The light is challenging.  If you have planned ahead, you have a tripod with you and can take a few images to blend later.  Then you can pull out the shadows and give them depth and texture.  You can find your highlights and let them shine.  You can also dial back the brighter areas that are going to distract you later when you come back to the image to view and enjoy.  All of these criteria are part of the image below.  I could never have even gotten it to the point where it is now if I had not worked over the past few years to learn at least the basic skills that I now have.  I wish it was as easy as hitting a button and it would come out as you envisioned.  At least for me, it is not.  I don't want to miss these subtle features of our world that are as important as a view of The Canyon of my youth.  Well, at least kind of close.
