Once again I succumb to the Turnagain Arm majesty. It’s a GREAT place to shoot and SO close to home! This time it’s just before sunset a couple weeks ago. I stopped along the roadway because I liked what the clouds were doing. As I walked a few dozen yards I saw these stark trees silhouetted against the clouds I so admired. I moved around to several vantage points, trying to get what I felt was the strongest composition. I hiked up and down a rock face looking at different compositions. I really liked the scene but never did think I had THE shot. But here’s two of them that I really like. The main difference is the length of exposure and slight difference in the time of day.
