The Woot Shung Walking Stick


This photograph was taken around 5:15 p.m., just as the sun was going down in a blaze of glory on one side of the sky, and the (nearly-full) moon was coming up through some misty haze on the other. The clouds in this shot were sandwiched between the two events; I didn't know which direction to shoot first! This area has a wonderful 360-degree view of the sky.

Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 24mm, ISO 400, shutter speed 1/200s and aperture f/10. Curves adjustments for contrast and saturation; color balancing for tone.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!



Very powerful photograph, the clouds are very expressive, beautiful!

Hi, Kathleen. I just found your website today and as I was perusing your pictures I couldn't keep my jaw from dropping. Your pictures are amazing, and especially on this one, I had goosebumps all over. You're awesome, as are your pictures.

Great Composition! The child, the clouds, and the large blue sky, recall my memory when i was a child.

The Woot Shung walking stick almost seems magical. Its like it is rallying the clouds towards itself. This shot is surreal!
