Cloudy day in the woods
Posted on 8 Jul ’09 by Earl
Today, I’d planned on visiting one of my nearby photographic nature areas after completing projects at home this morning. This area is heavily wooded and a noon-time sun can actually be a blessing with getting light through the forest canopy to shoot by.
However, while driving to the area the sky quickly clouded over to a solid featureless gray. It was dark enough among the trees at ground level that I had to increase the ISO setting a couple of steps.
I don’t mind shooting in gray conditions as I’ve found you can get some wonderful moody images. I don’t know there are many conditions I mind making photos in any more.
I have a thing for photos with paths or trails that lead away or fade off into the distance–this one qualifies.
