Morning Vs. Evening: The Changes To An Image

In my previous post about the Brazoria NWR, all of the photos  in that post were taken during the morning hours of 9:30AM and after.   The very next evening, the weather, sky, and clouds were perfect; I just had to return to the NWR for some evening images.  I used the same camera (Canon 5D Mk II) and the same two lenses (70-200mm and 16-35mm).  I tried to take photos of the same (or almost the same) locations as were taken during my morning shoot.  See what a difference the time of day, lighting, clouds, and weather can make to change the looks of the same image location.

  1. That was fascinating! What an insightful experiment!

  2. Hi Rebecca,

    Great photos – I really like how the reflections and ripples in the water really add to the vibrant feel of each shot. Was it hard to get into a good position to take some of those photos?

    • I’ve never had any problems trying to find a decent position to capture a photo – not yet, anyway. I’ve had to maybe stretch a little, or push a branch or two out of my way in order to get a clear view of the shot, but I’ve never had to climb up or down anywhere dangerous to life and limb, nor have I had to go through unusual contortions. I know some photographers risk life and limb for a shot, but I’m relatively cautious about things, because I know my physical limits.

  3. Great clean shots you have taken!!
