May 11, 2010, Reach for the Sky

This photo was another experiment.  It was inspired by all those cool photos of Redwoods out west.  These are some tall pine trees near my house.  I think that a logging company planted them, and is now harvesting this area.

I like the effect, but it's not quite what I want.  I think blue skies would have a better effect, but I do like the black and white look to this photo.

Lessons Learned:
  • I really wanted to take photos tonight after taking two days off.  Although I didn't have a lot of time to do so.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/60 sec, Aperture f/4.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 17 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, handheld.

It reminds me of those photos of iron filings tracing around a magnetic field.

Whoa. This is way awesome. It sort of makes you feel dizzy looking at it.
