Picture: Sunlit church steeple at sunrise, Ferndale, Humboldt County, California
One of the things that makes for a good dramatic photo is contrast. Lights against darks, and warm colors against cool colors. Here, the church was lit by sunrise light that came through a hole in a thick blanket of coastal fog that had settled in over the Victorian town of Ferndale and the Eel River Valley.
I love this type of light, and I’ve seen it before. In fact, one of my favorite images taken while shooting for my book, Backroads of the California Wine Country, had this same special quality of light.
