Assignment: Horizon

Horizon: ds104
Originally uploaded by Tehlanna

Today's dailyshoot assignment is to make a photograph that emphasises the horizon.

I have always liked the horizon as a symbol, especially at the beach. I think we have some of the best horizons in the Pacific Northwest; our skies are so temperamental, with deep black storm clouds and patchy blue-ness and stark, angry trees all at the same time.

This photograph was taken somewhere in Vancouver (the one in Washington); the patchy blue-ness is scarce, but if you look really closely you'll see it (you might want to squint your eyes up).

Taking pictures of horizons is hard work; between the bumpy car ride and my inexperience with the camera, today's assignment flat tired me out.

I said that just for you. My promise (or threat, bwahaha) to you is that if I'm ever in your Vancouver I am dragging you out to play.

I'm diggin' this one, too. I'm trying to decide on what my first DSLR should be ... so I'll be interested to see your D3000 photos (and to hear any feedback you care to share).
