It has been a hectic few weeks at work of late. Combined with the drought like conditions causing all foliage to lose color and structure and the constant haze/smoke from the fires ranging to the north causing even morning light to lose its luster, I have not had much time/success in my photography.
Yesterday morning I ventured out to do some shooting in Itasca, to find the wilderness loop was closed. Every where I went just had a depressing look to it. I left with nothing of note.
This morning I decided to take a look at photographing something architectural. I have taken several attempts to photograph the bridge on the South Side of Lake Bemidji. It is a small bridge, but has some character. I couldn’t use the sunlight to my favor with the smoke and hovering cloud cover, so I decided to use it as a backlight instead. I took the drone out over the river, got fairly low to the water, and captured the following panorama of the bridge. It is the best image of this subject I have made to date.
Exposure for the images, later stitched in Lightroom, is 1/120, f/2.8 @ ISO100.
