Brigantine Early Morning Landscape

We went to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division to see what we could find to photograph. In the early morning the clouds were amazing and made for interesting photo opportunities. It started out with darker looking somber clouds then brightened up as the morning went on. The featured image was shot @ 12mm on a Canon Camera. The series of clouds over the Wildlife Drive below were shot with a m43 format camera @14mm. When doing panoramas with wide angle lenses on a m43 format camera you need to overlap your images for the panorama a lot more. It is better to have more to choose from than not have enough. It seems if you have too few frames you tend to get some strange distortions (at least using Photoshop to assemble) in the blending of the images.

  1. Beautiful landscape and waterscape captures, Reed, the skies are amazing! Nice wildlife drive too! I have never been to this refuge and just read up on it after looking at your photos. 🙂

    • Thanks Donna! It is one of my favorite NWRs. Also it is the closest to our home. It is great for Ospreys in the warmer weather because many of the Osprey Platforms are fairly close to the Wildlife Drive so you can get nice images as they are coming and going.
