Photo 22: Shovel Point
Shutter Speed: 1/160
I took a drive up the coast to a trail called Shovel Point. While it's known for it's autumn beauty, I visited the site on the tail end of spring expecting cliff side views overlooking Lake Superior under a light blue sky. What I got was sporadic rain, thick fog and temperatures that you'd feel in March.
I've been told overcast skies make great conditions for photography. While this photo is hidden under a blanket of thick green brush, it made conditions favorable for a different kind of composition. The photo isn't symmetric, and that's not be design. It's a little uneasy to look at. I should have stood in the middle. But hey, life isn't symmetrical (a synonym for perfect in this context).
What is pleasing to the eye is the green and black that flanks the trail. I lucked out with intermittent shade and daylight that gives the photo that effect. And cheers to my model and navigator, Alex.
