Location: East Bay Hills, Altamont Pass, Livermore, California.
Summer months are dry and skies are devoid of any interesting cloud activity in the Bay Area. However, yesterday some interesting clouds rolled in and I went out for a photoshoot. The chase lead to this parched landscape where I found the contrast of dry past with future possibility of rain interesting.
Single exposure image captured using LEE filters to manage large dynamic range of the light.
Sunset seen from Mission Peak in Fremont, California.
Recently we have had some real good light in the Bay Area, so I took this opportunity to go make a photograph of the city I love.
At the risk of sounding artsy, I felt it was as if these clouds were opening up giving a glimpse of a nice little habitat on the other side... have a great start of the new year everyone!
This is a single exposure image. HDR effect was obtained using graduated ND filters. I use LEE and this image needed two of them, a three-stop and a two-stop one. Both were soft edge filters. Image needed minimal post processing in Lightroom.
