Eye of the Storm
Description: I was passing through the seemingly infinite, desolate spaces that comprise Oregon's remote South-Eastern landscape along the Alkali flats of Abert lake, as the skies rapidly darkened preceeding an ominous thunderstorm decending on the far shore. Hail and rain swirled intensely through the skies within it, backlit dramaticly by the filtered sunlight. I visulized a B&W rendition to capture the surreal, powerful mood of the fleeting moment. I hiked a half-mile onto the flats before finding a long pool stretching towards the stormy horizon. To control the exposure I used a strong 2-stop hard grad, intensifying the dramatic sky. Only PS work was the B&W conversion and necessary contrast adjustment plus minimal dodge/burning. 17-35 f/2.8 at 17mm. Singh-Ray grad. 1/10 second at F14. Gitzo Tripod and RRS head + remote release. ISO 50. RAW.
