The Boulder Field
The boulder field located near White Haven, Pennsylvania and part of Hickory Run State Park is one of the unique places I have seen. It was formed 20,000 years ago, a 16-acre, 12-foot-deep phenomenon created during the last ice age that is according to the site info at the NW entrance. How many football field is that? That is how big the place is.
Don’t you just love nature? My wife and son love the place. They went hiking up to the middle most part of the field, I was just there at the entrance taking photos as usual, lol.
This place was not that difficult to shoot. First of all the illumination was almost even. I just used matrix metering and meter the scene at the center and did some test shots. I settled with 1/20 seconds. Second, I set manual focus to infinity, everything up to infinity will be in focus. Third, I then I took 8 shots panned from left to right. Fourth, I just let Adobe Photoshop do it’s magic.
Before taking these shots I waited for some clouds to pass by because a blue sky is boring to me. I also waited for the sunset colors to reflect to the clouds but no luck. Oh well, you can be a master of technique but you can’t master mother nature, that is from Peter Lik.
Hope you like it!
