Dark Sunrise

I captured this along the Ohio River this past fall. Usually sunrise images contain quite a bit of color but this one seemed to scream for a black and white conversion and I was happy to oblige.

The Ohio River has always seemed to present me with many wonderful compositions over the years and this one didn’t disappoint. The hours I have spent walking the riverfront looking for just that right image has always been a favorite past time of mine and hopefully it will be something I can continue for a long time.

There are so many moods that the river displays and no two sunrises are the same, if you happen to be in Madison Indiana you certainly couldn’t do better than taking a sunrise walk along the river and enjoy one the rivers beautiful moods !!

Ghost face in Creek !!!

This was another shot from last fall at Clifty Falls State Park, I got a little different perspective on this one, looking downstream as the sun was rising on the left side of the image. The light was very warm and pleasant, which gave the image a nice warm glow.

The settings were f/22, at 1/3 second, iso 200.

After this image posted  a large number of people contacted me to ask about the ghost face in the creek. I never even noticed this at first, but after viewing the image again and then going back to the org. raw file there is something definitely there. I am one that doesn’t believe in such things but it definitely makes for good conversation !!
