Awash – Spectacle Lake

Daily Image - 16 October 2011 - Awash - Spectacle Lake

One thing that differentiates a professional from an amateur photographer is what the great landscape photographer Ansel Adams called “visualisation.” Usually pros know exactly what shot they want, how they want it to look and how to get it. Just the same, no pro is above grabbing a good shot when one gets dropped in his/her lap. Flukes are just as welcome as the perfectly planned shot.

I was out, testing the capabilities of the camera in my new iPhone 4S when this shot presented itself, almost as a gift. The textures, complementary colours, patterns and the movement of the water all combine to produce an extremely pleasing image. Oh, and this camera is definitely no slouch!

Apple iPhone 4S – 35mm – ISO 64 – f2.4 – 1/334.
