This is not my first time shooting this scene. I was first inspired to explore this location photographically when I saw an image by William Neill that literally made my jaw drop. Before I started taking landscape photography seriously – weekend warrior that I am – I recall years ago being in one of those “poster/framing” stores that used to be in every mall. Sifting through the stack of gigantic landscape poster shots, I stumbled upon an amazing photograph from Otter Point by William Neill. I vividly remember the soft, warm light and the beautiful highlights as the round rocks sparkled in the early light, and it obviously created a lasting impression on me. Lately I have not been able to find a copy of that image online, so instead, here’s the link to an equally stunning black and white rendition of the same scene. Both of my images in this post were made from the bottom right hand corner of the scene captured by Mr. Neill, and both were made this past weekend. And no… I am not thinking that my images are comparable to his!
