This week’s photo is from a trip a few years back. There’s an old Liberty ship that ran around off the coast of Lanai in Hawaii. We were there on a slightly misty day, and while the color images are amazing (especially a large panoramic shot), I really like the eerie feeling that you get from the black and white version.
I’m still working through my recent workshop and shoot in Moab, processing the files, and discovering some new gems. Often at sunset you only have a few minutes of the perfect light, and this was no exception. If I’d have taken a couple of steps father forward, I’d have missed the branches encroaching on the bottom left edge, but might have missed the shot. I bracketed the scene, then processed this as an HDR to capture the broad range of like that I saw.
And now for something completely different. As I mention on my bio, I try to spend as much of my time not doing cyber security work as I can. I’m an amateur photographer, and travel the world capturing images that tell stories about the amazing places I’ve been able to visit.
Last month I went to the Moab Photo Symposium with my dad, something we’ve been talking about doing for years. We had a great time before the sessions started – Bruce Hucko, Guy Tal and Colleen Miniuk-Sperry held the ‘Terrific Trio’ Workshop. Absolutely stunning scenery, great instruction, and a truly fun group of attendees. This image is from one of our night expeditions to the Needles district. We were all waiting for the light to hit, and I snapped this pano on a whim.
