Four Palms Friday

Four Palmetto Trees, Charleston Harbor, Mt. Pleasant, SC  © Doug Hickok

This is a view through four Palmetto palms toward Charleston Harbor on a hazy summer morning. I liked the palm trunks in shadow when I first arrived on the scene. I next used a 300 mm telephoto lens to compress space, giving the image a more graphic appearance. The photo was made on Velvia RVP color slide film a few years ago, back in my pre-digital days. You can see a little grain from the 100 ASA film speed, quite different from the smooth look of the 100 ISO digital speed. Also, I thought I would continue the blue/green color theme from yesterday's post. Hope I didn't make you doze off with all the technical talk.

Tomorrow will be a mixed bag day, with several promised images included.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Quick take: May I leave you with an absolute ooh aah image to start your weekend? 
How about this stunner from Frans Lanting!
