The Things Photographers Do – Part 2

If you’ve read last week’s post entitled The Things Photographers Do you might be curious just how far up we hiked after I took that shot of Garner State Park from above. Well, here’s the view from the top and what a magnificent view it is. That hill just to our right is where I wanted to shoot from but I new that another 100 foot rock climb was beyond my capabilities, even though my 69 year old friend thought we might make it.

So here’s a challenge for you younger landscape photographers. Climb those hills early in your career and enjoy the view. Life is way too short to settle for anything less!

Shot taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II set on aperture priority (Av) using an EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens tripod-mounted. The exposure was taken at 24mm, f/13 for 1/15th of a second using a Singh-Ray LB Warming Polarizer and a 4-stop, graduated neutral density filter at ISO 100 on Lexar Professional digital film. Post capture processing was done in Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS4 using Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro plug-in filters. Click on the image above for a larger version.

  1. Nice picture, Jeff; again, the effort proves worth it.
    I guess that this nice picture is better taken with the 5DII, rather than with 40D or 50D… none of which would spare you the climbing.

    • Terry,

      I’m fairly certain your climbs are much more difficult than mine. The “hills” we have here in Texas as nothing compared to your mountains.


  2. You’ve got that right. As I sit here on 60, I wonder how long and what I will be doing down the road. Great sky, nice landscape Jeff.
