Since my last post, there has been a major change in my life. My family has moved from Knoxville, TN to Berlin, MD. Between spending time doing all the things it takes to move across the country and work needing quite a bit of my time, I haven’t been shooting at all.
That is, until tonight! I needed a break from work and from thinking about unpacking and organizing and getting my Knoxville house rented and so forth and decided on a whim to go out and shoot a panorama of Ocean City. To be honest, there was a good chance I wasn’t going to get anything because I picked the spot to shoot from by looking at my neighborhood on Google Maps. I’d never actually been to that area before and didn’t even know for sure that it was accessible. Fortunately, it was. I must also credit my wife for finding the location that the shot below comes from. I had setup at the first possible location and started shooting for fear of losing too much light. She wandered around a bit and told me about this location which I definitely agree is the better spot.
I don’t know if it comes across in the web version or not but I deliberately processed it towards a painterly effect. I think it might look nice as a print on canvas. I think this could also be a really nice spot to bring a model to as well.
