Goldenrod at sunrise


It seemed extremely calm the morning that I shot this and I was trying for tighter framing and painting with flash. Since flash freezes the subject, when the files are composited any movement will be seen not as motion blur, but as two sharp images out of registration. Most plants and leaves may move a little on calm days, but will quickly stabilize when the breeze passes, so it’s just a matter of watching and being patient. Goldenrod on the other hand has a long stem which acts like a pendulum and it takes forever to settle down. My painting efforts all hit the trash bin. Fortunately the sun cooperated and gave me a nice, natural landscape.
