Simple Clicks – Shoreline Sunrise

Sunrise on a foggy morning at Bullhead Bay, 12 August 2011.

A final shot from Friday’s sunrise outing, and something a little different.  This shot came out of the camera upside down.  Why?  Because that’s how I shot it, with the tripod’s center column reversed and the camera mounted with the hotshoe only inches above the ground.  Perspective changes everything; I’d been shooting at standing height all morning, so switching to this critter’s level view made for a wholly new image, and one of my favorites from the morning.

Point of possible interest, this was shot with the 70-200L at f/11, and demonstrates just how narrow the DOF can be through a telephoto lens, even when stopped down.

Here we are again, shooting from my standing height again, for a final shot from the morning:
