Daily Photo – Heavy Industry in Petaluma

This is the second photo I have released from Petaluma. I stopped there while visiting my mom up in Napa. I didn’t get to spend a lot of time in the little quirky town, but I did take an hour or so to randomly walk around the town and find interesting bits.

Taking photos near ground-water can be very interesting. And hard! Getting near that puddle is tough because you have to splay out the tripod. Even worse, you gotta kneel down in the muck (since puddles usually involve nearby muck). But, these are all relatively high-grade problems, all in all.

    Oh wow! The sky is awesome – and the reflection in the ‘puddle’ was worth it! Way to go!

  • it’s so nice to be on the west coast and see your photos before midnight 🙂

  • Yet again… great clouds! You really must pay the sky gods well. 😉 Fun picture, and you are right, I love water reflections in photos, and HDR really makes the reflections fantastic I’ve found.

  • It would have been perfect if you would have stepped back a few feet in order to catch the entire reflection of the building in the puddle; wasn’t the opportunity available?

  • Yes – reflections are tremendous!

  • Lovely – I definitely feel that the best part about HDR is the skies. The detail you can produce with HDR on the clouds is great!

  • Tom

    Great! Love the reflections this time!

  • Love it! Industrial subject usually catch my eye a little extra 🙂

    Great job, Trey!! The reflection in the pool made getting muddy worth it 😉 . WTG!! Not necessarily my favorite, but you know I like landscapes, seascapes, and animals the best. Still, this photo is an excellent choice in the way of an industrial scape, did I make that up, lol. Thanks for sharing, once again. Have a good weekend!!

    Do you use an angle finder, or do you spreadeagle on the ground like a marine?

  • Very good shot! Love the placement/composition for the photo. Definitely a fan of things like this… making something beautiful that when you were taking the photo people driving by thought “what is he doing?!”

  • Great shot! I really like how the reflection looks like an old sepia photo. Was that purely because of the muddy water or did you also desaturate the reflected facade when processing the image?

  • Wow, love the reflexion in the water and the dramatic sky. The image is as usual very crisp. Thank you for your nice web site. I am experimenting with Topaz Adjust (discovered on your site) that I just bought yesterday and I must say it is such a great addition to my post-processing software suite.

  • I love the way you process the sky in your photograph’s. The master… wonderful

  • dude mad reflection!! this is a wicked shot

  • This is better. I don’t know about you, but when a muddy scene is present, I always have to give my camera a little bath.

  • Thanks all!

    Bigmarry – no – I did the best I could with that puddle ! 🙂

    Anthony – no I just marine it!

  • It never fails to amaze me how you find beauty in the ordinary. I’ve been to that location in Petaluma, and this post sure will make me look at that site and lots of others with new eyes in the future!

  • Carrie Patterson

    You obviously have hundreds of images that are my favorite but this one really stick out! It reminds me of home.

  • Travis;-P

    It looks like the reflections are an old photo.
    I started using Live View on my D90 to compose my shots that are low to the ground or over my head. I also bought an extra LCD screen protector ($5 from ebay) and one of these http://flipbac.com/. It works out great!

  • I like, how the clouds and reflections add drama to the photo.Only disturbing thing, as a common problem when shooting old country houses or other things are this electrical wires, that hang all over the head. This is no minus point to your photo, don’t think that, Trey.

  • Thanks everyone… I do sometimes do live view – but that is hard in daytime situations too

  • Great! I love such things, especially when processed with HDR technique that amplified the little details.

  • You have taken the mundane and visually assaulting and created a fascinating piece of art. I hope you post such work in other places for appreciation. Like your play with the colours as well. Nice work.
