Sunrise at The Edge of Suburbia

November 17, 2012  •  1 Comment

Suburban Lanscape 0080_HDRNX2A As a follow-up to my Landscape post of 2 days ago, I returned again trying to isolate the tree on the hill against a red sky. Two days ago it was cloudy but today was clear diminishing an extensive red sky. I still set up to photograph the tree on the hill. But, as I noted before, sometimes the image to be taken is not the one planned. As I waited for the sun I noticed the fence and the road and felt like they were marking a boundary between the development to the right and a area of land to the left not yet subject to granite top counters and walk-in closets. Hence the title "The Edge of Suburbia". I reset the camera for a wider angle view and waited for the sun. Anticipating a need for a wide range of focal lengths, I had my Nikkor 18-200mm lens mounted. I put the lens at 18mm and manually set the focal distance to 1 meter. With this setting at f22 I could get both maximum depth of field and a star burst on the sun. The final image was a 5 shot HDR (1/13 sec +/- 2 EV) processed in HDR EFex and NX2.

David, I would call this "The Edge of Promise" as it gives off the feeling there is more to come. Who knows where that promise will take one--but what a great feeling to have the gift of a promise waiting for us. I like this shot very much.
