Rather unusual for me, but this evening I went out, stopped down the aperture and tried my hand at some landscape photography. The focus of my attentions was on the new bridge (unnamed as far as I’m aware) that crosses the river suir, just west of the city. At over 460 metres long, it’s currently the longest bridge in the state. More images after the jump …
I arrived on scene just before sundown. Facing east with the sun to my back, I fitted a Hoya circular polarizer to increase the colours and to stop down the available light. Pretty much all the exposures from here on in are in excess of 10-15 seconds. The EXIF is intact if you want to nose through the flickr page.
Changing location to above and beyond the previous location allowed for some larger scale landscape images. This site gave a better sense of scale to the structure but the overcast and drizzly evening that was in it, made for some tough images.
Back at the original location, I played around with some wide shots. The colour reproduction on the 5D MKII with the 24-105 L is just beautiful. These images only received some minor white balance adjustment and a wee contrast boost.
Always time for just one more black & white.
All the images plus more are available to view on my Flickr account.
