Natural landscapes: the tilt of land
MORNING ON THE GRAND RIVER, CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO
This 280-kilometre river flows through the southwestern part of this Canadian province, emptying into Lake Erie (one of the five Great Lakes shared by Canada and the United States). It’s a quietly picturesque river, especially in pleasing morning conditions like this with an interesting sky.
After doing a number of standard compositions, I wanted something a little different, so I twisted the Nikon D90 enough to seriously skew the horizon. Now it’s something quite beyond a postcard photo, in my opinion. Tripod, polarizing filter, two-stop hard-edge graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
