Weekly Photo – December 24
On December 21, I was lucky enough to go out with my camera to be treated to both a stunning sunrise and a dramatic sunset. In the morning I grabbed the camera as I went out the door to walk the dog because the sky looked promising. I snapped the image below along the Bow River in Cochrane, Alberta (Canon Rebel T2i and the Sigma 8-16mm super wide at 8mm, 2 seconds at f11, ISO 100).
Later that afternoon, I saw chinook clouds forming and guessed that a big sunset might happen. So I drove out to McDougall Church at Morley at sunset to be treated to a big under-lit chinook arch. How lucky! This image is a sky stitch of two images to make a big square ulta-wide image (Rebel T21, Sigma 8-16mm lens, f8).
If you had a lucky day in 2010 and got an image you like head over to Visual Wilderness and enter our year-end photo contest for a chance to win a Singh-Ray Vari-N-Trio filter (deadline Dec, 31, 2010). Happy holidays to everyone!
