Canyon Lake in Blue

I apologize for the lack of updates this past week. I don’t update every day but I rarely go an entire week without posting something new. I won’t bore you with details but I do want to say thanks for sticking around. This image was shot under typical blue hour lighting conditions. I used a flashlight for the illumination of the foreground.

    Very well done. I’m not sure if I would have known it was lit up by a flash light if you hadn’t mentioned it. Very well exposed. (and glad to see you back.)

  3. Gary says:

    very nice, clever lighting in the foreground

    I was wondering what you used to light the foreground so nicely! Another beautiful shot that was worth waiting a week for!

    colors so intense…kinda scary, when i look at the rocks make me think about crocodiles underneath the water:-P…amazing light and perspective:-)

  6. KK says:

    Always look forward to the tips you share with us. How long did you use the flashlight for this exposure?

  7. Tuan says:

    ahhh! i knew there was a bit of light painting going on. Nicely done I must say.

  8. Andy says:

    Thanks, everyone. The image was exposed for 30 seconds at F/5.6 and ISO 100. I used the flashlight for the entire length of the exposure.

    Love the light painting on the rocks, such a great color contrast to the blue water. Do you really need the top section of the image? I find the hill, buildings and sky a little distracting, and think the intensity of the image would be added to by cropping out the top part.

    Superb shot

  11. Phil says:

    The flashlight makes it look like there is a lot of activity in the water, as well as adding some nice colour in the forground which contrasts well with the dark blue in the rest of the shot.

  12. Caryn says:

    Gorgeous colors, and I love the way the piled rocks in the foreground lead the eye right into the rest of the scene.
