The Bleary-Eyed Photographer

Don't try this at home - can be dangerous
Unlike some of my photographer-friends I find myself unable to rise before 5 am driving to catch the best light of the day -the dawn. I did, however, manage it this weekend.  At first, the whole enterprise I thought was going to for nought, as I drove bleary- eyed through light rain with heavy cloud cover.  I kept going, as in the distance I saw some hope of light and colour.

Dark clouds were everywhere- only some light on the far horizon.
North of Newcastle, Concession 6


Disappointed I headed for home but in less than 20 minutes there was some wonderful skies starting to appear. If only I had more patience. 
Courtice-Taunton Road- Pringle's Farm
These shots required a Lee graduated ND filter. It was good to have more experience with the Lee's.

This past week there was some fun with a '58 Chevy and an old pickup truck.


Or how about B&W?



This is a low-key version with an orton overlay effect . . .




Or even a little "midnight overlay"


Super HDR?

and the old truck - 









OK back to the peaceful, rural landscape in mid-summer Courtice:
