The camera you have in your hand is the best one. You never know what is going to unfold before your eyes.
If I had known the grey pre-dawn mist would reveal this spectacular show, I would have had my Hasselblad camera. None-the-less the camera on hand was my Nikon, however the choice of lenses was limited to a 55 mm macro and a telephoto… Not your typical landscape choice.
I picked the 55, and the first seven exposures of my panorama were magic. Though not sure how a macro lens would work, I processed, stitched and was rewarded with this shot.
Looking at the image, it has a special quality that only the “pre-digital” 55 macro lens could provide. Sharp detail, yet painterly, with soft pastel hues.
Check out at my new “Little Salt Photography by Carol Ellis” wall at Island Interiors. This 54” panoramic canvas entitled “Pastel Dawn”, as well as examples of a wide range of my previous work is on display Monday ~ Friday.
