Boothbay Harbor, August 22, 2011, 11:12 am
When considering taking up photography several years ago, I picked up Scott Kelby’s classic “The Digital Photography Book.” On landscape photography, he advises shooting at only two times of the day, sunrise and sunset. He says that some nature magazine editors will not consider landscape work that is not shot at these two times.
This rule has a sound basis-the warm light in the early morning hours or during sunsets is ideal rather than the generally harsh light in between. However, like many rules, it is meant to be broken. I think this was the case when I took this photo at around 11 am, capturing the gorgeous deep blue sky and cotton candy, marshmallow-like clouds. f6.3, 1/320, 100 ISO, 46 mm (74 mm with 1.6X crop factor).
