A Four Hour Trip, a four hour trip…

Got free of all my entanglements today, so I went on a long November paddle.  Tonight I’m too pooped to do much photo editing, but glancing through the images I liked this one.

Have anyone wondered why I often shoot the same scene again? One reason is that with photography, different light, different angle and different day and make a big difference.

The day started sunny, after turning around and heading back the clouds had rolled in and were passing overhead, but at this point a narrow wedge of late fall sun shone through a gap in the clouds and traveled quickly down the river valley. I missed a shot when the light passed over a grove of trees at the border between the forest and the marsh, the trees still had some red and yellow leaves that shone as the band of light passed over them. The rest of the forest and the marsh were still dark, the contrast was striking. But I couldn’t get the camera turned on and ready in time.  So I waited for the above shot and the light from the sun, low in the sky (very warm but not strong enough to wash any color out) played over this willow.

More tomorrow…

Tomorrow is here…
