Watson Lake, Prescott – a study of textures and lines

I woke at 4:00 am, drove for two hours, and still arrived an hour or so after sunrise…considered doing the entire shoot in black and white…settled for color, though, as I could change the treatment later…changed the frame to more of a wide angle, similar to that of a large-screened television in format…found that I was disturbed by the breadth and mass of the sky in the viewfinder, actually felt off kilter, but I knew the setting would help for the more panoramic shots that would come later and didn’t want to keep fiddling with the camera…so I changed my point of view and came home with this….

  1. Like the variation on a theme, or style. I think the 2nd with the grasses is my favorite, but then 2 more after that with the different textures in the water takes a close second. Lovely to see all that clear blue water. Also looks like a great place to kayak… though perhaps not so much getting up at 4 am. 😉

    • Thank you, Gunta…and getting up at four helps to beat the crowded freeway in getting there and then leaving before the hordes do…. 🙂

      • That seems to be the way to do it, the early start (even here), but getting me rolling out of bed that early is the problem. I’m far more likely to still be up at that hour…. 😉

        • Hmmm…I understand your predicament…I happen to live with two people who have the same problem…. 🙂
