A sunrise at the wreck of the Peter Iredale on the Oregon Coast.
Sometimes you show up and the sunrise doesn't, but the sun still rises. ;) My friend Mahesha and I arrived amid a bank of fog and in time, when the light came, a pure white sky. At that point we had to get creative with our comps to create a distinctive photo.
We changed out point of view and stood out in the surf to try to get a reflection, and then we decided to play with our shutter speeds as the bubbles from the waves passed in and out through the foreground.
In time we had created a whole set of photos all with different patterns caused by the waves. We left happy and not even disappointed with our colorless photos.
I wondered how many photographers would show up to those conditions, get pissed off and leave?? ;) Landscape photography doesn't always throw you slow pitches. Sometimes you have to pull from your bag of skills and creativity to create a photo that hits the ball out of the park. "Peter Iredale was a four-masted steel barque sailing vessel that ran ashore October 25, 1906, on the Oregon coast en route to the Columbia River. She was abandoned on Clatsop Spit near Fort Stevens in Warrenton about four miles south of the Columbia River channel. Wreckage is still visible, making it a popular tourist attraction as one of the most accessible shipwrecks of the Graveyard of the Pacific." #oregon #oregoncoast #peteriredale #shipwreck #landscapephotography #nikonusa #singhrayfilters #adobe #camping #jaw_dropping_shots #artofvisuals #earth_shotz #bestnatureshot #ig_masterpiece #splendid_earth #amazing #amazing_shots #master_shots #adventure #landscapephotographymagazine #reallyrightstuff #fineartphotography #garyrandallphotography #sunrise #photooftheday - 1 month ago
