gloucester wharf abstract #1

Today the seacoast was awash with fog that moved in during the early evening. As I sat in traffic watching the fog slowly slide in I hoped for an opportunity to make a great shot. I headed over to East Gloucester where I thought I might be able to find some contrast for a really cool shot involving the fog. What I found was this - I was blown away by the contrast of the nearly black old pilings and the white sky filled with fog. The sun would peek through once and a while and I waited for it to come out enough to give me a near white foreground. As I made this shot I just loved the way the water looked with all sorts of different shades of gray. I never ever considered this as a color image and this is exactly how I envisioned it. I can't wait to print it on some Epson Exhibition Fiber paper. This one is headed for the Rockport Art Association summer show in June. The shot was made with the Canon 5D Mark 3 with the 200 f2.8 and set at 1/320 sec at f16 at ISO 400.
