Night Skiing at Blue Mountain
2010-6. Jan. 6, 2010.
Daily Shoot - We typically use light to illuminate a subject. Turn it around today and make a photo of a light source of any kind ( http://twitter.com/dailyshoot/statuses/7458975707 ) .
This is a nightly sight for miles around Collingwood - the lights illuminating Blue Mountain for night skiing. It was a horrible night for taking photos - windy with freezing drizzle. I tried to take this photo from the waterfront, across the frozen harbour, but the wind and cold were too fierce! I drove up towards the mountain instead, pulled over by a farmer's field, and set up my tripod in the glow of my headlights. (I did not add this sepia colour; this is the way it was!) I didn't get the clarity or DOF I was going for. There was too much moisture in the air and it was far too cold to hang around trying different settings :-(.
