Good morning from Cowichan Bay

At times my camera espies the perfect view no tweaking required to update to what I think my eye saw. Well, these photos took little processing as gone through my normal CS curves and, perhaps, crop (the first CS edition) and Lightzone (not the end all to my desires  and hardly ever used here for RAW, sorry, but essential as it handles situations that frustrated the living daylights out of my editing in photoshop’s ancient release). In CS I took out some of the flickering highlights and in Lightzone some minimal dark detail tweaking + seagul enlightenment.

Anyway, the coolness of portrait photography certainly can be extended to these sea hunters. Available light only for laughing out loud:

It was the first morning that could liberate your feet off the dock and move them in ways the rest of the body might not agree with (FROST, the tripod became my cane and hands got cold). The top two photos show what my mind’s eye remembers seeing the next photo gives the camera’s interpretation of what it looked like.


Once again, good morning, wishing you a fine day for noticing and enjoying its colors.


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

  1. Really wonderful Joseph! The days have gotten remarkably colder in the last couple of weeks here, winter is most definitely making it’s way here. Lovely renditions of what coastal living is all about, my friend.
