Today I thought I’d take a little break from the Watson Lake images. Don’t worry, I have many more images which I will be posting in the near future as well. Today’s image is from The Valley of Fire State Park. I found this rock formation particularly interesting. I can picture the cave on the left being the den of some large troll and the little holes on the right belonging to a swarm of smaller insect light creatures. Use your imagination – what does it remind you of?
This is another shot I took not long after sunrise. As many of the photographers that read my blog will know, the light around sunrise and sunset is really the best for outdoor photography. This particularly holds true for landscape shots with one addition – it’s important to have interesting clouds as well. It doesn’t matter how wonderful the light or how interesting the landcape is – without clouds or some kind of interesting backdrop, the images are just going to look rather boring. One suggestion I have if you found yourself faced with a clear blue sky is to do your best to include some element of red/orange in your image. The contrast between extreme warm and cool can often yield some interesting results.
