Up on Cripple Creek

No, it’s not really Cripple Creek, I’m sure it has a real name but hell if I know it. However, if you get the reference then go you!

I took this shot as a warm up shot before I meandered off to my real destination. I hadn’t shot with my Sony A7R for a few weeks because I was in Panama using the Nikon D810. I just prefer the Sony A7R for landscape stuff because I can flip the LCD down to see what I am doing when I have to shoot at weird angles. Which in this case I did because I had the tripod set up at an angle to avoid a telecom line in the frame.

Editing wise I wanted to bring out the detail of the scene. While it was a warmup shot I didn’t want to treat it as just some b-roll stuff. So once I had things dialed in color wise I masked in some details here and there. I didn’t use a filter but did shoot at a relatively slow shutter speed to get the water to look like it did.

I like the “cripple creek” photo. This creek seems to dry when the river runs low in the hot dry months. WV creeks used to do the same. They are good because they keep homes and roads from flooding. The plant life around the “cripple creek” likes it for drink to keep it blooming. I enjoyed.
