'Gogs Golden Glow'
On any given day these two rocks stacks, known as 'Gog and Magog' would be viewed by thousands of people, and photographed tens of thousand times. And that’s what makes capturing a unique image even more challenging. Imagine my thoughts as this rain front quickly approached, and I realised I had put on the wrong filter. Oh well, I thought, fire one shot and then change it over to the filter I had planned to use. As I started reviewing the images this image popped out as one of my best shots.
How often does it happen that at first glance was seemingly an error turns around into positive experience. Perhaps this is the difference between a ‘glass half full’ and a ‘glass half empty’ person. Those in the ‘glass half full’ camp will try to put a positive spin on everything, much like this image. Taking the time to think manipulate the image to my advantage has led to the creating of what is perhaps one of my favourite images of ‘Gog and Magog’. CAPTURE DETAILS:

To make that gold really shine, i would be printing this on Breathing Color Silverado Metallic Canvas.
On paper, I would be printed this on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Baryta - a bright, slightly textured surface that would also give the golds a lot of punch.
DID YOU KNOW:
In a location with such heavy traffic, a lot of care needs to be taken with placement of your tripod - taking a long exposure can be frustrating... How often do you get a camera shake a person steps on the wooden plank that the tripod leg is on....
And at this location, tripod shake can be a common occurrence!
