When the Light is Not Golden

09Aug10

The more I target my outdoor photo shoots around sunrise and early morning, and late day and sunset, the more I realize the light is quite often not golden. I am presented with the choice of coming back another time or shooting for a different mood. I seem to always choose the later. Less than ideal lighting circumstances can highlight something other than warm perfect light. Images shot in the clouds, fog, rain and dim light can be quite unique. They can convey a feeling of peace or one of unrest. Here I pay homage to light that is not golden. These images were shot on two separate mornings when sunrise did not provide a spectacular display.

  1. Beautifully done! I like the look and feel to both these images.

  2. Very well put, Denise. I love these images. Adirondacks? I think I recognize those trees.
