Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

Interesting photo challenge this week. It worked well with my new camera, as it offered the type of depth of field shot that my wonderful little Nikon AW100 couldn’t do.

I took these two shots last night as we were on an evening walk around Brooks Point Regional Park. The sun was starting to set and the long grass that covers the headland began to turn golden in the late evening light. I don’t think I stood in exactly the same spot for both pictures, but the idea was to capture the grass in two ways, a wide shot of the grassland in the evening sun and a close up of a single stalk of glowing grass. Here’s what I came up with for One Shot, Two Ways:

    I love how you have focused on the blade of grass in the portrait orientation.

  2. Such a beautiful place to go for an evening walk! Great photos.

    Lovely shots and great lighting. We were actually there two nights ago. Such an amazing place.

    • Thanks, Deb. Isn’t it a great place! The only other place I know of in the Gulf Islands that has that wonderful grassland on a point is East Point on Saturna. Are you on Pender still? Susan and I drove over to Starvation Bay a couple of days ago and I was thinking of you guys.

        Hi Greg,
        We just got back to Red Deer a few hours ago after what seemed like a very busy week on Pender. We are back again for Thanksgiving (unless we win the lottery before that & then we’ll be there all the time! LOL!). Next time you are down in our neighbourhood come knock on our door and say hi. I can email you our address if you don’t have it…… but the noisy kids probably are a good clue as to where we are .

        I am looking forward to seeing all the shots from your new camera!

  4. Look at you.. already shooting like a pro with that new camera :-)

    I like how you not only changed the orientation of the camera, but also isolated an element from the horizontal shot in the vertical.
