Pillars at Sunrise

Hinkley Reservoir

I have to resort to an image I captured Thanksgiving morning since the moment I backed the car out of the garage it started to rain. We never received the rain late yesterday and it is not forecast to rain today. Oh well, I can work with what I have and hopefully the weather will improve as the day progresses.

The Isolation image posted a few days ago was captured on my way up to the reservoir. It is a miracle I make it to where I want to go as I am always looking for images as I drive. Today’s image is the one I had in my head when I set out Thursday morning.

I have not found out what these pillars are doing next to the dam in the reservoir but they are interesting to photograph. They are barely visible when the water level in the Spring is high but during the summer and winter they emerge from the lake.

  1. You have posted some gorgeous color the last few days. So beautiful – and inspiring. Makes me want to get out there too. We did have one gorgeous sunset that I ran outside for recently, but I love how you look for these great locations. Not so easy to find surrounding by suburbia as I am.

    • Thanks Karma! Not to sound cliché but it really is about practice. My first months as I was learning I barely left my yard. Incorporate your surroundings and make them work with your pictures. I just finished reading Bryan Peterson’s ‘Learning to See Creatively’ and it really filled my head with ideas.
