Rehearsing Sunrise

Rehearsing SunriseAlthough this looks like a sunrise, it’s actually the light from a nearby power plant. I can usually see if from several miles away without any problems but on this particular morning, the fog was so thick that I couldn’t see the lights until I was practically at the front gate. The light falloff was so extreme (as evidenced by the vignette) that it just created a large orange bubble around the plant. There were a number of other things I wanted to photography around the plant that were bathed in this eerie light but I was already late for work and the camera was getting a pretty good soaking from the mist.

    Beautiful picture. The vignetting really adds to the atmosphere.

  6. Glad you were there to capture this one! The thickness of the fog is surreal.

  7. Oh ya, really like these types of shots – the lighting in particular. It’s like there’s some sort of conspiracy going on in the background, X-files-ish. Nice! Also like how the frame gets darker at the edges.
