Rural landscapes: is fishing better at sunset?
LAKE HURON LIGHTHOUSE, SOUTHAMPTON, ONTARIO
It was a stunning Great Lakes summer sunset, but beyond that what I hope makes this a compelling image are all the silhouetted people, many of them casting a line to see what might bite. Surprisingly, there wasn’t a lot of colour in this scene (that came a little later; here’s the evidence: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-1lU), so I went monotone to increase the sense of drama.
Nikon D7100, tripod, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
