Hip Hip Hooray

As everyone knows, all is not lost for landscape photography when it’s foggy, cloudy, rainy, or all of the above.  Sometimes it’s just what you need.  This particular image was taken last summer on the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk in Ogunquit, ME.  It was an early morning walk, and we arrived at the meeting place around 5:00 am which meant I was up around 3:30.  Needless to say I was disappointed that I had gotten up so early only to find a total absence of any visible sun or sky.  I did, however, end up getting several images that morning that I really like.  The lack of an interesting sky certainly presents challenges, but the flip side is having that beautiful, soft, contrast-free light you get when the clouds/fog act like a giant softbox.  This light combined with the morning dew helped set up this shot of rose hips, which are found in abundance along the Marginal Way where this shot was taken.  The toughest challenge was finding the right ones to shoot among so many.

P.S.  Sorry for the corny title to this post.  I’m very tired as I write this, and I couldn’t come up with anything better.  Have a great weekend.

  1. Nice shot, Steven.
    We always want those sunrises and colorful skies but as you’ve pointed out, all is not lost.

    This is a great example of taking advantage if what you had to work with. Love them droplets.

    I hear ya on titles. They can be tough at times. 🙂
