About the Image(s)

I was on a photo shoot in Alaska in May 2015 when I captured this photo of an old cannery on Letnikof Cove in the town of Haines. What attracted me to this scene was the beauty of the cannery overlooking the cove. Also, the pine trees in the background, along with the fog and snow covered mountains I feel add to the beauty of this image.

This photo was on May 26, 2015 using my Nikon D800, Nikkor 24-120mm Zoom at 98MM, F9, 1/400th sec, ISO 200

What a great shot Gregory. The red building is center stage of this image framed by the branches of the pine trees in the foreground. The contrasting colors of the pine trees behind the cannery are a great background and the snow flecked mountains form a third tier in this image and add even more interest.   Posted: 02/21/2021 05:18:47

Once upon a time, long long ago I took lessons from the Smithsonian about Ansel Adams "best" pictures. One of the lessons was layers and that his best pictures had between 5 and seven layers. This picture is emblematic of that reason. The layers add so much and make this marvelous picture really work. Interesting to me is that the log or raft in the lake balances and adds so much. Perfect timing, great subject. Bravo   Posted: 02/21/2021 08:11:32
