This is a rework of a shot I took back in 2013.
I have always been attracted to scenes of lone trees. Combined with the water land and big sky it’s an image that is simple yet seems to captivate me.
There was another beautiful sunset this evening. This was taken just to the south west of the St. Jacobs Farmers Market. This tree stands all by it’s self in the middle of a large field. Click here for a Google map of the area. Some times you see these random trees in the middle of a field and I wonder why it wasn’t cut down. Maybe the farmer needed a shady spot to stop and have lunch when he was working the fields!
This shot was taken this summer at 50 Point Marina near Grimsby Ontario Canada. We sailed across the west end of Lake Ontario from Bronte Marina. Though we had mostly sunny weather we could see thunder storms all around us. We got safely docked and the sky opened up with lightning and thunder. After the storm we were treated with this beautiful sunset!
This HDR is a 2+/0/-2 three exposure shot process in Photomatix – touched up in Photoshop, Topaz filters, Imagenomic Noiseware noise reduction.
The sky this evening looked promising for a good sunset so after work I went back to the bridge in Conestogo to shot it from the opposite direction. The sky was changing quickly but this one seemed to work out ok.
