p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A New Beginning


I hate repeating myself, but I had a few reasons to go back to this spot and re-photograph it. I'm slowly zeroing in on what makes this spot "work", I hope! And every day is different. One big key is that brief moment when the background butte is lit up and the foreground starts lighting up. This only lasts about five minutes when they are synchronized. Then one or the other fades... The other (which I missed in the photograph) was the beautiful crescent moon this morning.







Thanks for looking!

Hey Craig,

Really sweet looking. It does look like you have the timing down on this. I like the interplay between light and shadow.

Good work and attitude... I like the rewards of getting it just right too. Is this a single image or multiple for dynamic range?

Thanks guys!

Robert, just a single shot. D800 with 45mm tilt-shift. The D800 has unbelievable dynamic range. Also for the first time used a Lee 3-stop gnd. I'm still working on getting the focus just right also... I've been moving it around between f/5.6 up to f/22. This was f/11. Problem will be a conundrum for landscapers I believe, the depth of field versus mild diffraction. I'll take depth of field (and an extra shot or two at f/5.6 I'll put away in case I need them).

The color palette along with the fab light really makes this 'scape rock, Craig!

Nothing wrong with going back to perfect an image and this is a very worthwhile location to do so. The light on the canyon walls is great!

The light is just sublime...as is the sweeping curve of the river. Excellent!

Easy to see why you keep coming back. That's a kind of scenary that keeps one's imagination going.
Beautiful composition. Thank you for sharing.
