A GLIMPSE OF MY TOWN TUESDAYS -- Sunrise When the Tide Was Out


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 7000
Film - Kodak Gold ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/20
Aperture Setting - f-22 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 24mm
Hyperfocal focus
Grad 1 and Grad 2 filters

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at goodiesbaker@yahoo.com and I will be happy to provide you with one.

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday and that the warm feelings of the season continue on in your hearts for a good long time.

I actually did not plan to post the shot that I did for Christmas Day. I just got lucky that it came back from the lab in time for me to post. I shot it a couple weeks ago to use for “A Glimpse of my Town Tuesday” post and forgot all about it. I took some other shots with the Autocord of the angels close up. We’ll see how those come back.

Weekend before last I went out to shoot in the predawn light only to discover that the tide was out…way out. It was over four feet out. Everything you see in this shot is usually covered by the water. So, my plans were changed. I hung around for the sun to come up and took a few shot of a very clear-skied and mediocre sunrise. I used the experience to put to test a couple of ideas I’d had. This is my favorite shot of the few I took. The richer colors shown here lasted only long enough to meter and take the shot. I was all the way out on the eastern side of the peninsula looking out at the Chesapeake Bay. My oldest (the self-appointed bodyguard) was sleeping in the van. Now that she has her little digital P&S, maybe she’ll actually get out and shoot with me on these early morning trips.

A gorgeous sunrise. I really like the low-water look of the beach area. You captured the vivid colors of that short time when the sunlight is so warm. Very nice shot.

Oh my. This is a wonderful shot. Your perspective, too, is excellent here. The colors are stunning.

One day, if I can get myself up early enough OR stay up long enough, I really want to get a good sunrise. Sunsets are awesome, but sunrises seem pretty wild as well!

A gorgeous shot, what makes it for me is the splendid anmount of foreground detail you have picked up..not easy when facing the rising sun. Truly the best time of day.

That is absolutely stunning, Micki! Very nice and, if I may say so again, what a scan!

This is as much an experience as a photograph and, as you mention, the light changes so fast at the extremes of the day. I am hooked on those light-struck rocks and the little ripples to the left are sooo cute. The digital daughter in your narrative is noted with much interest, too . .

That's a great shot: good rays on the sun and a nice gradient in the sky.

Just dropped in to tell you, that you have been submitted to my favourites at Google-Reader ;-) And some more: I like your philosophy. I, too, still have my Minolta X-700 Body, a couple of lenses, and sometimes I, too, put a Fuji-film into it. Unfortunately, I cannot afford the use of films any longer. Here in Germany, the cost of a single film exceeded 3Euro, and developing is expensive, too. So I've surely took my last series on Holiday in Denmark using that camera *cry*.

Enjoy your work as we do ;-)

Well, you could smack me silly with this one and I'd love every minute. Almost mythologically gorgeous.

(And thanks for the "atta-gals" on my sketch of Dave MacIntyre, he just has such a great face I had to try.)
