Hi Warren. Glad you went up there. I had similar weather on my first attempt to make it to Haiyaha for sunrise. Looks like a fun trip regardless.
Thanks Dave! Yeah, you never know what it's going to be like until you get there…which is definitely part of the fun. Luckily the park is only about an hour away from home so I'll get another chance to try again soon!

Just wondering, how many times do you head out to shoot and just end up driving around scoping out future opportunities? As I get older I spend more time not shooting vs shooting everything and editing later.

Thoughts?

I'm like a hunter. If I leave with the gun, I'm gonna shoot SOMETHING! Seriously, I usually photograph something when I leave with the camera. Sometimes it's a throwaway, like a couple of weeks ago when I left with the wrong lens mounted and didn't carry a second lens. If I lived closer to the mountains or the coast, I might take more scouting trips. Here in central NC suburbia, scouting drives are few and far between.

I scout every time I leave my house. Its a wonder that I don’t get into more auto accidents. Difficult to keep my eyes on the road

Actually, I really hate the car. I need to walk to really work. Perhaps the was growing up in the UK were folks walk more, or at least don't have to drive for half an hour to take a walk. But I do go between shooting selectively and prolifically. The type camera can dictate that as well.

I was wondering, the sky looks better (with blue) in the BTS. Is there something with the Dynamic range in the main pic?
The final image is with de-saturated colors and a LUT applied to achieve the look I'm after in this series. The BTS is with iPhone and no post-processing.
