This image is My First Sale with Dreamstime and it happens to be one of my all time Favorites. The reason is that for me it was the first time I was able to achieve an image that I have dreamed of... Having a Dramatic Mirror Effect.
And to think.... it almost never happened.
The day I shot this, I almost left the area not thinking any good images would come of this time and place.
I had looked thru my zoom lens and it just was not showing that great of an image for me. I thought I better move on to a better spot. Before I left, I decided to try another lens that I had just purchased. It was a wide angle lens. Immediately I knew it was what I was looking for and more. I was so excited. I knew I had great potential for getting one of my most sought images. The Mirror Effect.
This image was taken at Pismo Beach California last winter during a rain storm. Everything came together just right to creat this image.
The tide was low . This allowed the beautiful stormy sky to mirror in the wet sand. With the wide angle it created a very dramatic look. It turns out that this lens has been a wonderful tool for my photography. It is a Canon 10-22 f3.5 lens. I don't go anywhere without it now.
This image has helped create my first sale with Dreamstime and I am so happy that others may enjoy my favorite photograph.
That is my main purpose.... to have photographs that other will enjoy.
Hey Thanks so much. Pismo is a special place. I love my lens that you just got. It is a great landscape lens and I have had luck with buildings. It can distort on the wide end but sometimes that can work in your favor. Good luck with it.
