Sea 2 Sky

This photo was taken from the same road as Tuesday's image, just above the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. I actually hadn't intended to post this photo, but people seemed to like the other Sea to Sky photo so I figured you might enjoy this one too.

I was pretty intentional with the framing of this image. I tried another composition that made further use of the rule of thirds, placing the mountain range closer to the bottom of the picture space and leaving more sky above the sun. When I compared the two compositions I preferred this one.

I don't have much else to say about this photo; so instead of reading any more of my mundane thoughts, I recommend you take a minute, click here, and watch this funny music video. Don't forget to leave a comment though!

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 6mm, f/8.0, 1/1000 sec, ISO 50

A smooth picture. I like the almost monochomatic look it has. Very nice!

Hi timmy it's a nice landscape this last.

here a summary translation of the text of Raymond Depardon and his book "wander-errance"

I have the feeling that something will not be any more like before. It is perhaps there the true definition of the errance, of its search, with its loneliness and its fear. It is the desire which I sought, the purity, questioning, to go further, in the center of the things, to make the vacuum of me. I must wash me the head… to meet the center of a new image, neither too human, neither too contemplative, or it's the ego who is aspired by the places when the place is not spectacle, especially not obstacle. I should live this search which is mine… It arrives at one moment, neither good nor bad, it is necessary… To be right, this wander errance is inevitably initiatory… my glance will change… This search becomes the search of ego acceptable.

Well framed; good use of thirds; you are becoming quite the PS-er in some of your shots!

I really like this composition. It's neat because while the lake and mountains are lined up correctly the angle of the clouds in the sky is so interesting. Great photo.

This worked really well Timmy. I've always been a believer that rules should not be set in stone; in fact, it's the ability to creatively break the rules that shows true artistic talent.

This is a wonderful shot. The "V" pattern the trees made really draws the eye to the sunset. Great work!

I prefer to think of the rules as flexible guidelines. I like the layered look of this picture. The way that you have framed it really gives it a sense of depth. The V in the trees parallels the softer v in the mountain.

Beautiful shot Tim. Framed perfectly in my rule book.

As for the video...bizarre. I didn't really get it, mind you I didn't take 4 hits of acid beforehand so that might explain it.

I like the muted tones in this one, Tim, as well as the framing.

I think that it is a great photo. I have wanted the ability to take pictures like that for years. Mind you, I can't even afford the camera.

Unfortunately, I can smell you from here.

Guess who...
