Orange

I passed this creek on the side of the TransCanada Highway at least twice on my trip to BC a couple weekends ago. I made a mental note to make sure I stopped to shoot it on my way home, and I’m very glad I did. I only fired off a few shots as the composition options were limited due to the fact that the creek was right on the side of the highway, but I’m very pleased with what I got.

Including an interesting element into the foreground of a photograph can add a great bit of punch to a shot, and is sometimes overlooked. I was lucky to spot this huge orange rock and be able to incorporate it into my frame. Next time you’re out shooting, look for something interesting to place in the foreground of your frame to add some extra interest.

Great find with that orange rock. Like I said in the past, love your ND work.

As always, sweet work with that ND10. My favorite part of the shot is the transparent but still milky water to the left & right of the orange rock. Subtle but a great shot.

Something about this composition just pulls me right in. Well worked.

I like the way the water pulls you into the woods. Nice work.

Nice, glad you got to stop by here, man. I also made a note, too, and Chris and I hit it up on the way back to Calgary. Anyway, love the comp and high contrast processing here. Great work!

I love it Heath. You’re right framing the rock in the foreground is perfect.

Brian Matiash - June 23, 2011 - 11:09 am

Love this shot – glad that you took the time and effort to stop and grab it. Way to go with leading the eye through the frame.

I feel like I’m getting sucked down the river. Nice work!

[…] of Heath, he recently put up his own dynamite shot of Sherbrooke Creek, featured in the next shot. Chris, Heath and I all noticed this small spot […]

It doesn’t even look like a river, more like mist running through a river bed Awesome work man
