A large home and light pollution over Beresford Creek

Beresford Creek Lights

Some days there just aren’t enough hours to fit everything in.  I ran out of day and hadn’t taken a photograph yet.  So I walked down my road to the landing on Beresford Creek and got a couple of frames.  I would have stopped at one, but the lights from this house across the creek on Daniel Island were so bright that I had to go all the way to -2EV to bring them anywhere near exposed.  The purple/blue highlights in the bottom windows were clearly more than one TV.  I can’t imagine the electricity bill for that place!

The Ravenel Bridge from a new angle.

Nouvel Angle

A week ago I discovered a new vantage point for the Ravenel Bridge here in Charleston.  Tonight’s image is from that point and with the 80-200mm f/2.8 L at 80mm and f/8.0.   I like this angle, but I’m not sure there is room at the spot to do anything more interesting like a portrait.  I might try it, though, in the near future.

"Parachute" trees at a North Charleston park near the Cooper River.

Eject

There are a number of these trees at the park near my office in North Charleston.  Together they look like a unit of paratroopers landing at D-Day.  So today I tried to isolate one of them against the sky.  I added a 580EX fill at 1/2 power and with 3/4 CTO to warm up the light a bit to give the feeling of a bright sunset.  (For the non-photo geeks out there, that means I used Canon’s best flash with a piece of translucent orange filter over the flash bulb)  My intent was to light the underneath of the “parachute”, which this certainly accomplished.  You can see the strong warm light on the trunk and under the canopy of the bush.  It also adds some directionality to the otherwise flat, shady lighting.  I’m still not sure I like the image as posted.  I’m trying some other interesting things with processing…you can check them out at my Flikr photostream….

Of course I missed the opportunity of the day, however.  There was a young military mother at the park with her young son trying to take a self-timer photo of them in a bench-swing.  I helped her take the photos and hopefully provided some keepers to send to daddy who is off on deployment.  It wasn’t until I was halfway back to my truck that I realized I should have taken out my own camera again and captured some truly wonderful photographs of a mother and her very cute son.  People are so much better subjects than trees!

Lesson for the day:  ALWAYS be prepared for AND LOOK FOR photographic opportunities.  Much like the idea to turn around when you’ve seen all there is to see in a scene, never dismiss an opportunity at the expense of the “planned” image!
