Rocky

April 17th, 2007

D20 4714 RockyHave I mentioned the sun at Big Bend. The searing, brutal, relentless, glaring hot sun? I thought I had. Challenging light. From the moment the sun rose above the horizon until the moment it sank below it, it blasted us. It cooked us. It created lens flair. Hot highlights and dark shadows. Never a break. Now and then there would be a hint of clouds, but the sun would burn them off in no time.

This is on some rocks in the morning of our second day of shooting. It was fairly early in the morning. This was a great setting. With some relief from the sun, even a little bit of cloud cover or mist in the early morning there would have been lots of possibilities for compositions here. But the sun beating down on us dictated everything about the shot…camera angle, pose, composition all determined by the sun. And that’s the way it was at Big Bend.
