A week or so ago Parker suggested I take my wide angle lens to the dam where he had taken a photo before. Contrary to my "I hate early mornings" lifestyle I decided to get up early one morning as we were supposed to have storms rolling in and I thought a wide shot of the dam with the sunrise and broken clouds in the background would be great.
As usual, the weatherman was completely wrong with the forecast and there wasn't a cloud in the sky! I decided I would wait a while and see what happened so I did some work in my yard. As luck would have it, some nice puffy clouds started to move in about 9:00 a.m. so I grabbed my gear and headed for the lake. Ten minutes later when I got there the clouds were gone! I think I was saying something bad about Parker right about then! LOL
The first photo is cropped down because I was shooting into the sun with no clouds!
This second photo is from the other side of the dam (looking west) and is a better photo in my opinion. There wasn't any water flowing over the spillway since it has been dry and over 100 degrees for the last two weeks. It was hot and humid when I went to take these photos and again, not a cloud in the sky. Did I mention I was saying bad things about Parker? LOL
This was the best of the day as far as I'm concerned. I walked out to the center of the dam and turned around (looking south) and that's when I stopped cussing Parker! :~)
This was taken just above the spillway looking down the valley.
These were all taken with the Sigma 10-20mm with a CP filter. The first and last ones were turned on the vertical when shot.
