If you know anything about landscape photography, 99% of your planned shots usually end up as a near miss. Funny, that term “near miss,” since it literally means “hit.”if you “nearly missed,” it means you hit it.
Anyways, back on topic. I recently bought the 45-100mm lens for GFX and I usually take new lenses to Rizal Bridge to test them, as long as the focal length permits. Conditions turned out to be nearly what I’ve been waiting patiently for. The one shot I want from there is with the clouds traveling either northwest or southeast, preferably at a pretty good clip, since movement of the bridge due to buses and trucks traveling over it limits the length of long exposures.
I recently got the clouds but they dissipated a little too soon during golden hour, leaving the skies mostly empty by the time blue hour rolled around. Sadly, since I’d moved the camera to test it at different focal lengths, I’m unable to create a composite of a golden hour sky over a blue hour landscape.
So, another near miss. Maybe next time.
