On the Mountain

20 12 2009

Sometimes I like to stray from people photography and get some landscapes. This image is from my place here in Palestine.  We call it the mountain, but its really just a large hill.  This shot is well after sundown and the start of what is called the blue hour. The sky is a gorgeous blue and with longer shutter speeds, it captures the saturated colors well.

It was nice to just go out and be quiet for a little while, which I think everyone needs that from time to time.  I did have a photographer friend shooting there also,  and it was great just talking shop and hanging out.  Well after dark we were experimenting with 20 to 30 second exposures, but we couldn’t feel our fingers anymore.  So we try that again when it’s a little warmer, and I’ll post the results.
