Photo Of The Day By Harry Lichtman

Photo By Harry Lichtman

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Lifting Mist – Bonsai Cove” by Harry Lichtman. Location: Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Western Maine.

“I worked this composition on Mooselookmeguntic Lake from every angle during the summer and fall, but drastically low water levels made it exceedingly challenging to get the desired reflection between the rocks in a pleasing composition,” explains Lichtman. “I used the rule of thirds to roughly line up the foreground rocks in the bottom third and placed bonsai rock on the right third, the horizon on the top third. That created a nice opening on the left of the image, where the sun was rising, illuminating the scene. Mist had just lifted, allowing the strong lighting.”
