Sometimes I think we photographers like to torture ourselves. We get up early, we stay out late, we go out in the rain, we hike to desolate locations all in the name of a photograph with emotion and mood. We are rewarded for such behaviour just enough times that we keep doing it.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to stop torturing myself or anything. It’s just that sometimes I like the shots I took while scouting a location in the middle of a sunny blue sky day. Somehow it just seems wrong, but I still like them.
Here are two shots I made of Lake MacDonald in Glacier National Park while scouting the location for the shot in yesterday’s post.
In contrast to the great weather when I arrived, the photo shoots on the next day were full of thunderstorms and menacing skies.
Which set do you like better?
