Sunrise Off The Stern

"Sunrise off the stern" is a phrase one might hear while sailing the high seas aboard a large ship or boat, the stern being the rear or aft section of the vessel, for my non-nautical friends. :-) Such was the case in the image below as I stood across the outer harbor section of Baltimore along the Patapsco River. It was during that magic hour when the sun had just broken over the horizon and began to burn away what was a dense fog. At times like this the sky becomes a painter's palette, with nature doing the painting, and the results can often be stunning for a brief period.

These large ships really stood out in a scene that I wanted to capture and remember. The peace and solitude of an early morning along the shoreline is something to behold.

Back at the computer, the images were opened in Lightroom 4 where one of several Sunrise presets (Sunrise 5) I've created was applied. Surprisingly, this was one of those instances where the job was done right then and there. Lucky me. ;-)

Me and My Shadow

Happy Friday, everyone! Another lightning fast week has come to a close. Here's to a great weekend.

If you're an early riser and a photographer you'll occasionally find yourself caught between a rising sun and a setting moon.  Odd place to be, just me and my shadow.

I hardly ever do self-portraits and usually stay away from angles that have my shadow in the frame, but this particular morning was different.

Thanks so much for clicking by, I'll catch up to you soon.

Safe travels!

The Roadster

One of the things I am always on the lookout for are vintage hot rods. Not just any hot rod, but ones that just beg to be photographed and happen to be surrounded by the right setting. While out driving one day I came upon the scene below. Enjoy!

Lines to the Sky

Welcome to the weekend... again! Time flies when you're having fun, as they say. To close out the week I'll go to one of my favorite subjects, architecture. It's where we can follow the lines to the sky and enjoy the beauty and design of tall buildings. Photos of tall buildings and skyscraper art have always been a part of my collection, even when I knew nothing more than the fact that I liked them.

The image below was taken in New York City on one of my last two trips. Not sure where this is exactly but you can see the shadow of a rooftop crane cast upon the main building in the frame.

In post-processing this was one of those easy-as-pie images that simply needed a little cleaning up after the HDR Efex Pro routine. Afterward, it was time to call it a day and schedule this to post at midnight. ;-)

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
