Sunrise On A Gazebo

Sunrise On A Gazebo

I took two different shots of the gazebo at Antietam. One from the front and this one. Considering the light I guess I didn’t take them that far apart. If there was a hell for photo editing this image is likely involved. I have edited this image at least 10 times. This is finally the version I settled on. Part of the problem was the light and how the camera metered it. It did some really funky things and I…

Road To Yonder

Road To Yonder

Title came from a comic I read as a kid. Guy walks up to two other guys and asks for directions. One of the men answers and and says ‘It’s yonder’. The man asking for direction leaves. The other man who didn’t talk then asks the man that gave directions if he actually knew where he sent the other man. He replied, ‘Always wondered where yonder is’. This isn’t the most fabulous image I ever took in my life. In…

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

This is another one from Antietam Battlefield. Was on the field near the visitor’s center with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance and the sun just starting to rise. This is another example of an image that was meant for HDR that just wasn’t going to work. HDR just creates too many variables into the image that make it difficult to get a solid, finish image. There are little things that drive me nuts with objects not aligning. Weird…

Golden Stalks

Golden Stalks

Shot this along the fence closing in a field in Sharpsburg, Maryland. I was walking along the road and saw the light coming in on the dead stalks against the fence and figured I take the picture. To be honest, I’m not thrilled with the image completely. The sky is a funky color. I can’t color correct it and when I stripped it out didn’t look right either. So I left it. I cropped most of it out with the goal…

I shot this while I was in Sharpsburg, Maryland. I was was shooting over an old fieldstone wall while standing in a graveyard. It was super windy but I just liked the color contrast that were going on. I shot this image intended it to be in HDR but reality is sometimes far apart the vision in your head. The problem here was the wind. Also the camera did some really funky stuff to the sky. I really don’t remember…

Dawn On The Gazebo

Dawn On The Gazebo

Change it up and going to Antietam Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland. It is also a HDR image which I haven’t processed many of lately. I have no idea what this gazebo is. It’s got small memorial plaques which you see. I personally liked the light of the dawn coming over the hill just giving enough light for the path and the gazebo to be exposed. Haven’t processed HDR in awhile but this image just cried for it. It also helps…

Dawn Over The Rolling Hills

Dawn Over The Rolling Hills

Returning to Sharpsburg, Maryland for this dawn photo shot at the Antietam National Battlefield Park. I have been relying heavy on the dawn shots because they are extremely rare for me. I’m more of an evening photographer versus a morning one. If I have a choice of sleeping in or going out for a sunrise shoot I can guarantee sleeping will win. So it’s a bit of a treat for me to edit these. This is a HDR photo but…

Fading Dawn

Fading Dawn

This is another one from Sharpsburg. I figured since I was up at an unholy hour I might as well make good use of the sunrise photos I took. I honestly have no idea where I was in Sharpsburg when I took this image. I know I was on a farm based on the fence but don’t quote me on that. I just know I liked the image and went and setup my tripod and took the photos. This is…

Dawn Over Sharpsburg

Dawn Over Sharpsburg

The title gives away where this image was shot. Sharpsburg, Maryland is a bit weird in that historical sites are right up against private property. While I was on public land at the time the field and the fence were private land but I suspect they were apart of the Battle of Sharpsburg since it just runs all together. I was right up against a barbed wire fence with my tripod shooting over the farms field. There was much cursing…
